La Crosse Community Theatre announces that tickets are on sale now for And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank. Performances are September 17, 19 & 20, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lyche Theatre at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
Witness the stories of Holocaust survivors, Eva Schloss and Ed Silverberg, who crossed paths with Anne Frank and faced the same heartbreaking discrimination and brutality of Nazi Germany.

This deeply impactful and immersive production raises questions and provides striking insight into a horrible time in our history.
“This is an extraordinary opportunity for our community to see a powerful drama that provides insight into a horrible time in our history. We are honored to host Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss for post-show talk backs each evening,” said LCT Interim Executive Director, Tom Desjarlais.
And Then They Came for Me is directed by Sara L. Adams, costume designed by Theresa Smerud, stage managed by Katya Carter, and assistant directed by Grace V. Riness.
