The writings of a young girl - musing about life's mysteries, about arguments with her mother, about ordinary daily events - hardly seem the stuff of great drama.
Just make your mark? For years there have been rumors as to the elimination of teaching cursive writing in public schools.

I've seen "The Diary of Anne Frank" performed several times, and this production at the local college/Brainerd community theatre was different. It is a newer adaptation of Anne's diary. I had a stronger sense of their religion and customs in this version. Anne speaks more openly about her body and sexuality, though not overtly, rather as most girls do as they're growing up and curious about their bodies and who they will fall in love with. I felt more of a tenderness between Anne and her mom towards the end of this production than I've ever felt.
"Grown-ups have lived their lives and made their wars. We kids didn't start these wars or make these messes. We deserve a chance to live our lives." This is a paraphrase from Anne's line in "The Diary of Anne Frank" at the Park Square Theatre in St. Paul. I attended this performance as a chaperone with about 200 eighth graders from Forestview Middle School. It was stunning. The cast of characters were exactly how I have pictured them through my readings, imagings, and visit to the Annex in Amsterdam.
For week of March 21-27; bands perform from 9 p.m. to close with no cover unless otherwise noted.
An enthusiastic group of nine Central Lakes College students and two from area high schools will stage eight performances of "The Dairy of Anne Frank" today-May 12 in the John Chalberg Theatre, Brainerd campus.
"The Diary of Anne Frank," which opens tonight in the John Chalberg Theatre at Central Lakes College in Brainerd, will be the last production area theater fans will be able to see at the college for a while. The college has scrubbed its summer stage season because of budget constraints and will resume next fall with a scaled-back schedule.
