Parade

05/25/2018 8:00 pm - 8:00 pm
4th Street Theater
Address: 4th St Theatre, Chesterton, IN 46304, USA

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.

    Music and Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM

    Book by JAMES LAPINE

    Orchestrations by JONATHAN TUNICK

    DIRECTED BY ANDY LEAHY

    MUSICAL DIRECTION BY LAURA CARNS

    James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, work... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

    The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later...with disastrous results.

    One of Sondheim's most popular works, "Into the Woods" is a musically sophisticated show with both lighthearted moments hearkening childhood innocence and a myriad of nods to dark comedy.
