Here are two shows you shouldn’t miss on South Florida stages this week.
“The Diary of Anne Frank”
Local middle and high school students have spent their summer putting together a production of the drama of eight people hiding from Nazis in an attic for two years. The staging is the result of a free mentorship program. Students are paired Maltz staff members for one-on-one guidance through the creative process. “‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ is a young person’s story being brought to life by young people,” says Julie Rowe, the Maltz’s director of education, in a press release.
When: 7:30 p.m. Aug. 12
Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E Indiantown Road, Jupiter
“The Carlucci-Cohen Jewish-Italian Comedy Wedding”
Neither the rabbi nor the priest know exactly what to do with the situation at this interactive musical comedy. Audience members are asked to dress as if attending a wedding since they could easily find themselves involved in the show. In addition to the immersive performance, dinner includes Caesar salad, chicken marsala, grilled salmon, penne alla vodka, wild rice, vegetable, dessert and coffee/tea/soft drink.
When: 5 p.m. Aug. 13
Where: Galuppi’s Restaurant, 1103 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach.
Cost: $45 (includes dinner, show and parking). Cash bar
