During the German occupation of Denmark in WWII, Nazis began to round up Jews for relocation to concentration camps. Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring attempts to rescue their Jewish neighbors. In this stirring play, young Annemarie and Kirsti Johansen face personal danger and their own fears as they try to help their friend escape. Courage, faith and ingenuity eventually win the day. All the drama, adventure and humor that have made Number the Stars a best seller, as well as a Newberry Award and American Library Association Book of the Year Award winner, come to life in this powerful adaptation.
