Students from Anderson, Covington Catholic, Highlands, Newport Central Catholic, St. Xavier and Scott high schools have all been cast in a production of Parade.
The students are all members of The Commonwealth Artists Summer Theatre (C.A.S.T.) group, under the direction of Fort Thomas Independent Schools’ theatre instructor Jason Burgess.
Parade is written by Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown and is the tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder. In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his supervision. 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.
Parade will run for two weekends beginning on July 12 at the Highland High School Performing Arts Center.
