OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College's (CCC) Theatre Department opens the spring main stage May 23 with its production of the award-winning play "And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank."

Presented as a multimedia play, "And Then They Came for Me" weaves videotaped interviews of concentration camp survivors Ed and Eva, with live actors recreating scenes from their lives. Ed and Eva knew Anne Frank before her family went into hiding. Ed was Anne'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 unique theatrical journey.

Directed by Julie Akers, "And Then They Came for Me" features a dynamic ensemble of CCC students and community members with scenic and lighting design by Chris Whitten and costumes by Gina Piva.

An opening night reception will be held Thursday, May 23, at 6:30 p.m., with music provided by CCC's Jazz Combo under the direction of Music Department Chair Lars Campbell. Refreshments will be served.

"And Then They Came for Me" runs May 23-June 2, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. All performances are in the Niemeyer Osterman Theatre, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City.
