By Douglas W. Larche
Based on the young reader's novel by Lois Lowry
During the German occupation of Denmark during World War II, the Nazis closed down Jewish-owned businesses and began to round up the Jews for relocation to concentration camps. Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring attempts to smuggle the entire Jewish population across the sea to Sweden and safety. In this stirring play, young Annemarie risks everything to help her friend Ellen Rosen escape. But will the 10-year-old girl have the courage and ingenuity to succeed and escape capture herself? Based on Lois Lowry's national best seller and Newbery Award winning juvenile novel of World War II. Recommended for ages 11 and up. Contains mature themes.

If you don't think you are ready for auditions or feel like it is too big of a time commitment, think about becoming involved in our Act One Drama Club that produces our performances.
Drama at Lower Columbia College offers courses designed to provide students with an understanding of the theatre and an appreciation of theatre, acting, technical theatre, and production experience through performance. Students develop the ability to express themselves in many ways: acting on stage, seminar discussion, play analysis, review writing, script interpretation, kinesthetic expression, and technical proficiency in set, costume, and light design.
One play is presented each quarter during the academic year. Participation is open to all students, college employees and members of the local community.
Students interested in acting can complete an associate degree or begin studies to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Drama courses can also be an important supplement for those who plan to major in the humanities or social sciences.
