Posted February 23, 2006; 11:43 p.m.
The Princeton University Players
will present the musical “Parade” in the Matthews Acting Studio, 185
Nassau St., at 8 p.m. Friday, March 3, and at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday,
March 4. The show also will run at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, March
9-10, and at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, March 11.
“Parade” is the story of Leo Frank, the Jewish employer of a young girl who is murdered on Confederate Memorial Day in Georgia in 1913. Despite evidence to the contrary, Frank stands accused of the crime. Directed by junior Rory Kress-Weisbord, “Parade” is an account of racial conflict, xenophobia and political fervor.
One of the largest theater groups on campus today, Princeton University Players is entirely student-run and has performed Broadway musicals since 1986.
Tickets are $8 for students, faculty and staff; $10 for the general
public; and free for Tiger Tickets holders. They can be obtained at
Frist Campus Center or by visiting the University Ticketing Web site.
This event is sponsored by the Center for Jewish Life.
