During the German occupation of Denmark in World War II, the Nazis closed down Jewish-owned businesses and began to round up the Jews for relocation to concentration camps for the final solution. Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring, hurried attempts to rescue the entire Jewish population. In this stirring new play, 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 safely. Courage, faith, ingenuity and even their fledgling acting skills eventually win the day. All the drama, pathos, adventure, terror and humor that have made Number the Stars a national best seller (and winner of the Newberry Award and the American Library Association Book of the Year Award) come to life in this powerful adaptation.
Brandy Bond will be directing. Brandy last worked with SCTC as the Assistant Director of

What Should I Expect At The Audition?
The director is looking for several things. Some of those are imagination, energy, enthusiasm, stage presence, self-control, and the ability to take direction and get along with others. When you get to the auditions, you’ll need to sign in with the stage manager. The audition itself will consist of getting to know each other, exercising our imaginations, and reading from the script. That’s about all there is to it!
