Meet the Anne Frank Cast - Mr. Van Daan

Joe Grady (Mr. Van Daan)

Prior to landing a role in Charlie’s Aunt in 1994, Joe’s last stage performance was in his school’s St. Patrick’s Day extravaganza in 1949. His excuse for the gap is that he is choosy about his roles! In the last fifteen years he has been in A Christmas Carol, Early One Evening at the Rainbow Bar & Grill, Into the Woods, Oliver, Sylvia, Death of a Salesman, Under the Milkwood, and Breaking Legs. If you look close enough, you may see his winning smile on the Black Oak Casino television commercial. He hopes that the audience comes away from the show with a renewed sense of empathy for all people who suffer and die as a result of intolerance.
