Courtney Lucien as Anne Frank

Former Indian Hill Theatre Students working as a professional actress now. Many people in our community remember Courtney Lucien for when she played Belle in “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” .
This is just a quick note to let you know that Courtney Lucien will be returning to the stage here in Cincinnati to perform as Anne Frank, in “The Diary of Anne Frank” at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. As any proud parent would, I try to get the word out to those who might be interested in seeing her perform.

Here is the description of the play from Cincinnati Shakespeare Company:

“In a tiny attic in Amsterdam in 1944, two families of Jewish refugees hide in silence from the Nazi Regime below. Unable to speak for fear of being discovered, the young Anne Frank tells her story by writing in her diary. The Diary of Anne Frank is a harrowingly intimate view of history’s greatest atrocity as seen through the eyes of one extraordinary young girl. The chronicle of her family’s experience endures as both a condemning indictment of man’s capacity for cruelty and a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit.”
