LSW Theatre is presenting their Fall play, “And Then They Came for Me,” next week on Oct. 3 and 4 at 7:00 p.m. and Oct. 6 at 2:00 p.m. in the Lincoln Southwest auditorium.

“I feel like this will be a very powerful performance and a lot of people are excited about [the play],”senior Dalton Holsteen said. “There’s a little bit of pressure with a lot of eyes on us but in the end it’s a huge honor to perform such a meaningful play.”

“And Then They Came for Me – Remembering the World of Anne Frank” is a multimedia production that includes video interviews of Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss who both have unique ties to famous Holocaust victim Anne Frank. There will be live actors who reenact the experiences told by Silverberg and Schloss.

A historical newsreel brought to life on the stage, Theatre Director Bob Henrichs is producing the show with the help of  Jake Sedivy and many others for the school’s 18th straight season opener.

“There is big out reach from the Jewish community, and synagogues, and Institute of Holocust education,” Sedivy said. “I think this will be one of our more controversial plays but especially in today’s times you need to do some like that… at the same time this will be one of our most powerful [plays].”

To get tickets you can buy them at the Theatre Box Office or call the theatre box office at 402-436-1335 to reserve your tickets. Tickets are $8 for students and children and $10 for adults.
