Every Fruit Fly Goes to Heaven 
By RJH, Directed by Lex Barker
After dying and ending up in heaven, Guy has decided he's sure he's not supposed to be there. After all, he didn't do anything spectacular with his life. A comedy about the value of a life and self-acceptance.

Checkmate
By Robert Scott, Directed by Jayden Neil-Abe
A tense Thriller in which a friendly game of chess between husband and wife quickly becomes more of a deadly game of cat and mouse. Michael likes to think he is always one move ahead. Perhaps though this time Amy has him in check.

PVCC THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS:

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK

The Diary of Anne Frank

A Play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Based upon "Anne Frank: the Diary of a Young Girl" newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman
Directed by Gary Zaro

Synopsis: In this transcendently powerful adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, The Diary Of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" This is a new adaptation for a new generation.
