WaterTower Theatre’s Managing Director Greg Patterson and Associate Artistic Director Kelsey Leigh Ervi have announced the cast and creative team details for Parade in Concert which will play a special one-night performance on Saturday, March 25. Parade in Concert is a production directed by Kelsey Leigh Ervi, and under the musical direction of Scott A. Eckert, with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and a Book by Alfred Uhry. All proceeds to support WaterTower Theatre’s Artistic and Education Programs.
According to the press release by WaterTower, Parade in Concert was “Inspired by the true events surrounding the 1913 murder trial of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia who is wrongly convicted of the murder of 13-year old Mary Phagan, 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. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope.”
