3-D Theatricals presents the Tony Award-winning musical PARADE by Alfred Uhry (book) and Jason Robert Brown (music & lyrics) May 10 – 26 at Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton. The show is directed by T.J. Dawson, choreographed by Dana Solimando, and musically directed by David Lamoureux. PARADE is the 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.
Original Broadway cast member Rufus Bonds Jr. will recreate his role as Jim Conley, the janitor at the National Pencil Company and star witness at the trial. Also included in the cast is Broadway veteran and Mark Taper Forum revival cast member Robert Yacko taking on the role of Governor Jack Slaton, while the role of Hugh Dorsey is played by Broadway veteran Norman Large. The cast also features Caitlin Humphreys (Lucille Frank), Harrison White (Newt Lee), Jeanette Dawson (Mrs. Phagan), Jeff Skowron (Leo Frank), Jordan Lamoureux (Frankie Epps/ Young Soldier), Valerie Rose Lohman (Mary Phagan), and Zach Ford (Britt Craig). Performances take place at Plummer Auditorium, 201 East Chapman Ave, Fullerton Ca. 92832. For tickets call (714) 589-2770 x 1 or go to www.3DTshows.com.
The Goldhirsh Foundation is giving $100,000 to ten different projects to help move LA into a brighter, better future. At least one of the grants is going to an arts and culture idea, which is very exciting! In order for a project to be considered, it has to get enough votes to demonstrate strong interest - and voting closes Wednesday at noon! There are many great projects, one of which is the LA STAGE Alliance’s project, called the ARTS & CULTURE INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE. The point of the project is to launch activities aimed at increasing the overall amount of funding, money, resources and support for LA arts, including matching corporate officers with arts organizations as board members (wouldn’t you like more board members with the ability to support you financially and with broader connections?) and a united fund to help put new philanthropic dollars into small and midsize arts organizations. Take a read, and please vote HERE. Let’s change the way the arts are supported in Los Angeles!
