CANADIAN PREMIERE
Parade the Musical

The winner of two Tony Awards for best book and score, and the Drama Desk and New York Critics’ Circle awards for best musical, Parade has built an international following for its haunting score and powerful narrative. Acting Up Stage and Studio 180 are proud to present its long-awaited Canadian premiere.

In 1913 Atlanta, Georgia, a teenage factory employee is raped and murdered. Leo Frank, the young Jewish manager of the factory, is charged with the crime. By manipulating witnesses and tampering with evidence, the prosecution convinces the jury that Frank is guilty.

Considered one of the most sensational trials of the early 20th century, the Frank case pressed every hot-button issue of the time: North vs. South, black vs. white, Jewish vs. Christian, industrial vs. agrarian. The musical recounts the press frenzy and public outrage surrounding Frank’s trial and conviction, including his crusade for justice amid religious intolerance, political interference and racial tension.
