The Tony Award-winning musical PARADE runs March 7-17


The story of love coming to life in a world ripped apart by prejudice…

This musical drama takes place amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. Daring, innovative and bold, Parade is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten. The drama is based on the true story of Leo Frank’s trial and lynching in the early 20th-century Atlanta.

Ostracized for his faith and Northern heritage, Jewish factory manager Leo Frank is accused of murdering a teenaged factory girl the day of the annual Confederate Memorial Day parade. Alfred Uhry’s award-winning book and Jason Robert Brown’s rousing, colorful and haunting score illuminate a circus of conflicting accounts, false testimony and mishandled evidence in a town reeling with social and racial tension. Isolated from the world, Leo develops a new and deeper love for his wife, who tirelessly crusades for his freedom.

Guest Director Scott Keys leads this production.

This is one of our Action Through Acting productions and is presented in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee.
