This production of Parade is performed by students in Syracuse Universy's Drama Program and directed by Marie Kemp. Daring, innovative, and bold, Parade won two well-earned Tony Awards in 2000. The tragic, true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish man wrongly accused of murder in 1913 Georgia, serves as the basis for a tender love story. As Frank seethes with the injustice of his conviction, his wife Lucille finds untapped reserves of love and strength to become his greatest champion. Parade is a passionate and powerful work of musical theater.
Amid religious intolerance, political injustice, and racial tension Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. Its heart-wrenching story offers an unforgettable moral lesson on the dangers of prejudice and ignorance. Parade made its Broadway Debut in 1998, and since then has had a successful run on the West End as well as a US Tour
