Number the Stars (25th Anniversary Production in NYC)
Number the Stars 25th Anniversary limited engagement runs Nov. 14-17 at Davenport Theatre. Based on the Newbery Award-Winning novel by Lois Lowry (The Giver), the play is adapted for the stage by Doulgas W. Larche. Directed and Produced by Laura Luc.

Following true events from World War II, Number the Stars is the story of two best friends, Annemarie and Ellen, and the hardships they face while their country is occupied by German Nazis. When Annemarie makes the decision to go on a dangerous mission, she must find the strength and courage to save her best friend's life. On September 29, 1943, word got out in Denmark that Jews were to be relocated. Within hours the Danish resistance, population and police arranged a small flotilla to bring 7,000 Jews to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of war.
