    Percy, a young woman who was recently released from prison, arrives in a small town in Maine with hopes of beginning a new life. She lands a job as a waitress at The Spitfire Grill, owned by Hannah, whose gruff exterior conceals a kind heart and little tolerance for the grill’s regular customers who are suspicious of Percy’s mysterious past. None is more suspicious than Caleb, whose wife Shelby, works at the diner. Despite Percy coming up with an ingenious plan to help Hannah sell her restaurant, she is accused of stealing proceeds from the sale.

    Parade

    The tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder is brought to theatrical life.

    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. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colorful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For a New World, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County), Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America’s history.

    In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of thirteen-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.

    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. Groups looking for powerful, moving theatrical experiences will need to look no further than this unforgettable show.
