After delighting audiences with the toe-tapping spectaculars Hot Mikado and The Producers, Festival Players return to the ADC Theatre with the dark, haunting and searingly honest Parade.
This epic Tony Award-winning musical tells the true story Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-born Jewish factory supervisor accused of murder. Set in the US State of Georgia in 1913, this tale of suspicion, retribution and flawed justice is played out against the backdrop of anti-Semitism, racial tension and the North vs. South rift which has yet to heal, 50 years after the end of the Civil War.
With brilliant music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, this unique musical combines pop-rock, folk, R&B and gospel styles. It is a riveting murder mystery, a gripping courtroom drama, a moving love story and certainly one of the most powerful new musical theatre works of our time. Not to be missed!
