ANNE FRANK — Clackamas Community College's Theatre Department opened the spring main stage May 23 with "And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank." Presented as a multimedia play, it weaves videotaped interviews of concentration camp survivors Ed and Eva, with live actors recreating scenes from their lives. Ed and Eva knew Frank before her family went into hiding. Ed was Frank's boyfriend, and Eva was her childhood friend who lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Part oral history, part dramatic adaptation, prepare to be transported on a theatrical journey. Directed by Julie Akers, "And Then They Came for Me" features an ensemble of CCC students and community members with scenery and lighting design by Chris Whitten and costumes by Gina Piva. "And Then They Came for Me" will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and at 2:30 p.m. Sundays, through June 2. All performances are in the Niemeyer Osterman Theatre, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City. Tickets are $11 for adults, $9 for seniors (62+) and $5 for students. For tickets, visit www.clackamas.edu/theatre or call 503-594-3153.
