Meritorious Achievement in Acting to Emma DeGroff as Anne Frank, and;

The adjudicator commented:
“What happened in World War II is still relevant today. Seneca Community Players made the Diary of Anne Frank up close and personal. The intimate setting allowed the audience to experience what being in hiding was like. From the time we walk through the bookcase until we see Otto Frank return, we feel some of the pain and suffering that took place within the annex. Thanks to Eric Jansen and the Community Players, the story was brought to life.”
