Production Description

Casting "Parade," based on the true story of the trial and lynching of Leo Frank with book by Alfred Uhry, music & lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, and co-conceived & directed on Broadway by Harold Prince. Synopsis: In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of 13-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. Director of Education states: "The White Plains Performing Arts Center Conservatory Theatre is beginning a new summer theater program that gives student actors the opportunity to work in a professional regional theater under the guidance of Broadway artists."
