Photos: 3-D Theatricals' PARADE Celebrates Opening at Plummer Auditorium

3-D Theatricals presents PARADE now through May 26, 2013 at Plummer Auditorium, 201 East Chapman Ave, Fullerton, Calif., directed by T.J. Dawson, choreographed by Dana Solimando and musically directed by David Lamoureux. BroadwayWorld was there for opening night and brings you photos from the celebrations below!

PARADE is a tragic and true story of the 1913 trial of a Brooklyn-born Jewish factory manager Leo Frank who was accused of raping and murdering a 13 year old employee, Mary Phagan. Already guilty in the eyes of those around him, the trial, sensationalized by the media, aroused anti-Semitic tensions in Atlanta and the state of Georgia.

Helped by his loving wife and principled governor, Frank's sentence was commuted due to possible problems with the trial and transferred to a prison in Milledgeville, Georgia. The ending is both sad and poignant, yet resonates as if the events had taken place today.

PARADE is an award winning musical with a book by Alfred Uhry (DRIVING MISS DAISY) and music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. The musical was first produced on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater on December 17, 1998. The production was directed by Harold Prince and closed February 28, 1999, after 39 previews and only 84 regular performances. However, in this short time the musical made such and impact that it won Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Original Score (out of nine nominations) and six Drama Desk Awards. The show has enjoyed a U.S. national tour and numerous professional and amateur productions in both the U.S. and abroad.
