Youth Cast Stars in Tony-Winning Musical Parade
Set in 1913, Parade tells the true story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia. Frank is put on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker he employed. Already deemed guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, Frank suffered the added consequences of sensationalist news stories and a janitor's false testimony. His only defenders were a governor with a conscience and, eventually, his assimilated Southern wife, who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion. When it hits the stage at El Cerrito Performing Arts Theater, Parade will reveal a deeply human lesson about how love and human connection can be forged, even in a climate of intolerance. The show features a cast of over 30 performing arts students -- ages 13 to 21 -- from cities throughout the Bay Area.
