Tickets are now available at dramat.org! If you would like to see this production for free by ushering, please email the producer at derek.braverman@yale.edu.The Yale Dramatic Association is proud to present Parade as its Fall Mainstage Production. With music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Alfred Uhry, Parade won Tony awards for best score and best book while on Broadway. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to work on the show; please email the producer at derek.braverman@yale.edu.Parade deals with a dark episode in our nation’s history, and brilliantly turns that story into the stuff of musical theater. Unlike most musicals, this show’s theatrical power hinges on fact rather than fiction. It’s not set in some dark dystopia, sumptuous drawing room, or storybook kingdom. Instead, the story unfolds in a quintessentially American town over the span of three Memorial Day parades just one century ago. The fantastical element of Parade is American history itself.But Parade isn’t entirely cynical; it takes care to remind us that tenaciously good and loving people can profoundly impact the course of history. The story encompasses almost every pocket of early-twentieth-century Atlanta from the Governor’s mansion to the chain gang. We’ll be shuttling, lightning-fast, between the public and private realms and high and low society. We’ll move between the exuberance of the crowd and the contemplativeness of the individual. We’ll delve into historical detail and explore elemental truth. And yes, we’ll sing our hearts out, perfect our drawls, and dance together, too.Parade will be presented in the Yale University Theatre from November 20th through November 23rd.
