    THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
    DPH NorShor Theatre
    May 6 – 22, 2022
    Showtimes
    Thurs – Sat @ 7:30pm | Sat & Sun @ 2pm
    In this transcendently powerful adaptation, audiences meet a complex, passionate young girl as she grows into a woman, falls in love, and struggles to survive amid the chaos of war and religious persecution. As vital today as when it was first written, Anne Frank’s historical writing has become an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of human history. In defiance of her oppressive circumstances, Anne’s spirit transcends, as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” Anne’s story of resilience continues to resonate deeply today. Drawing from previously unpublished parts of Anne Frank’s real-life diary, this show encourages audiences to experience Anne in a way that breathes life into this fearless young woman.

  • El Oasis Del Norte at Bent Paddle (Restaurant/Bar)
    Sunday, May 22 06:00 PM
     
    The Name Oasis Del Norte, or “Oasis of the North” is our way to bring a little piece of Mexico here to the Northland. I grew up working in my mother’s successful restaurant named “El Oasis” in Jerez, Zacatecas Mexico. It is still a favorite stop for locals today. Now, living up in the Duluth area, I just had to bring my mom’s recipes to the area. It reminds me of home, and my mom, but more importantly I can share my culture through my food. You can experience a part of Mexico when you eat my food. Our real tacos are “clean,” “simple” and “fresh.” The idea is to be able to taste each of the layers of flavor. Nearly everything is made from scratch and we can accommodate special diet requests from Gluten Free to Keto. We source local ingredients when possible. Our carnitas pork is marinated in local craft beer. The beef comes from an area farmer and the tomatoes are from Bay Produce in Superior. We can’t wait to meet you and have you join our family of Authentic Mexican Food Lovers!
