TESSA GILLARD and the THEATRE
THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
The Cast of The Diary of Anne Frank – narrative accompanying the pictures by Ron Bender.
Mr & Mrs Frank Bob Minty & Tessa
Mrs. Van Daan & Peter (me) Again with several layers of clothing.
The actress had the most wonderful name, Irmengard Kirchhammer._ I wonder whatever happened to her.
Anne & Peter and Mouchie...the cat._ Yes it's a real Siamese. I'm lookin' a little chubby here!...This is just before the opening scene and I am wearing several layers of clothing.. The young girl is actually about 13yrs old, perfect for the role. Her name was Carmie Kadish
THAT'S a little better!!
Me as Peter Van Daan...Dark brown hair this time, to make me look less German, I guess...
I loved this play, and later directed my version of it for Central Players in Toronto about 1963
