Main Street Theater presents Number the Stars
During the German occupation of Denmark in World War II, Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring attempts to rescue the entire Jewish population. In this stirring play, based on Lois Lowry’s awarding-winning book, young Annemarie and Kirsti Johansen face soldiers, interrogations, fierce dogs, personal danger, the loss of loved ones, and their own fears as they try to help their friend Ellen Rosen escape across the ocean to Sweden and safety.
Recommended for Fourth Grade and up. The cast is comprised of nine Houston area students. Professional artists direct and design all MST Rehearsal & Performance class productions.
