WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The White Plains Performing Arts Center presents a one-weekend-only limited engagement of Parade , directed by Keith Levenson, from Friday, Aug. 8 through Sunday, Aug. 10.

Parade is the musical dramatization of the real-life story of Leo Frank, falsely accused of murder. It is brought to emotional and theatrical life by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Alfred Uhry and Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown.

The show’s subject matter offers a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.

The events surrounding the investigation and trial led to the emergence of two opposing groups: the revival of the Ku Klux Klan and the birth of the Anti-Defamation League.

The League is a premier Jewish civil rights organization formed in response to the anti-Semitism surrounding Leo Frank's trial and lynching.
