Pitt-Bradford Prism Series Features Comedy, Drama and Ballet


BRADFORD, Pa. – Drama, comedy and ballet are on the bill for the 2010-11 Prism Series at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The university’s premiere arts series will begin with “The Diary of Anne Frank” presented by The Barter Theatre from Abington, Va., at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13 in the Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall. The price for the public is $29 and $24; the cost for all students is $12 and $10. A matinee will be performed Oct. 14 as part of the Kaleidoscope school series.

Based on the published diary of German teenager Anne Frank, the play tells the story of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis in wartime Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
