Experience “Anne Frank, her Diary on Stage”, a theater play based on the life of Anne Frank. It covers the 2 years spent by Anne and her family hidden in the secret annex, as well as events occurring before and after that time. Anne's words poignantly reflect the tensions and tragedy of existence during her family’s time in hiding and make the period come alive. The life-sized set, 180 degrees around the audience, combined with archive footage and beautiful music makes it possible for you to experience Anne's journey that takes the lonely little girl to writing and into womanhood in the midst of terrible oppression.

Free use of our Translation System, in audio and/or subtitles on an iPad fixed in front of your seat in 7 languages, 100% synchronized with the actors on stage.

“Anne Frank, her Diary on Stage” is the first-ever theater performance based on all the versions of her diaries, including the uncensored ones edited by Anne Frank herself. This theater performance was created at the initiative of the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel. Income from the Frank estate is redirected to fund educational and charitable purposes worldwide.

A wonderful play about Anne Frank. It is based on the different versions of her diary and continues the story after her hiding place was discovered. The play received a well-deserved standing ovation from the audience. It is performed in Dutch, but non-Dutch speakers are able to reserve an ipad which is attached to the seat in front and provides... More

The night that we were there there was a 25 minute speech (at the box office we were told that it would last 20 minutes, but it ran over). There was no advance notice that this would be the case and since the speech was in dutch, all non-dutch speakers were out-of-luck. The main issue that keeps me from giving... More

Wonderful play. Very touching, geest acting andere great decor. Especially the replica of the 'Achterhuis' that turns around in the stage is great. The storybof Anne Frank is told really well in a relatively short amount of time. Highly recommendable, although one should not expect a musical, it is really 'just' a play.

A Fantastic and very emotional play based the the diary of Anne Frank. The set/stage is superb with a rotating house which shows the different rooms where Anne and family lived. There are also sliding sides to the stage where videos are played between sceens. The Cast are excellent especially Anne who from start to finish play the part superbly... More

WOW - what an excellent venue and performance a credit to everyone involved. We arrived early as the theatre is out of the city but still easily accessible by bus or taxi. We had a pre-show meal which I have to say was above expectations for this type of venue, the food and service was perfect. The performance was conducted... More

We visited the Christmas eve afternoon matinee and the four of us all enjoyed the show immensely. The set and actors took us through the time Anne spent with her family (and others) in the Amsterdam annex. Particular thanks to the actress who played Anne, very heart warming and exceptional acting. One min point: Car parking at 12,50 we found... More

Very emotional play! I had English audio as the play is obviously in Dutch but I followed it fine . The interpretation was clear only bad point was it was hard to get the humour as the voice over has no emotion . Other than that fantastic .

I've seen some wonderful theatre around the world. War Horse in London and Aladdin on Broadway certainly are on the top of the list not just from a pure enjoyment point of view but from a technical perspective. Anne blows them away. The mix of cinematography, live theatre, and live camera shots are so incredible that this production definitely resets... More

We went to this play to kill sometime in Amsterdam and it was really worth it. The production value is super high and the set looks amazing. Really well done! The play is in Dutch but they have these little subtitles that you can get to follow along. I don't speak Dutch and it was just fine. Note that the... More
