CENTERstage Productions is thrilled to present PARADE, directed by Jovan Bradley. Musical Direction by Paul & JoAnne Schubert, Choreography by Cedric James. Book by Alfred Uhry, Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.

In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his employ. Already guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, a sensationalist publisher and a janitor's false testimony seal Leo's fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience and, eventually, his assimilated Southern wife who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion.

 

There will be a special panel discussion for this performance.  Details to follow.
