ATG's "Parade" Coming to West Orange!



ATG's season premiere production of 


WHEN: March 2-5th 
Sieminski Theater, 8000 Fellowship Rd., Basking Ridge. 

WHEN:  March 9-11th
WHERE: Maurice Levin Theater at the JCC MetroWest, 760 Northfield Ave., West Orange, NJ 

We are thrilled to be able to expand our patron base by presenting this brilliant musical in an additional location. As many of you know, ATG had its roots in Essex County for a number of seasons and we are happy to return and provide our loyal, long-time patrons the opportunity to experience this production closer to home. We are confident that performing in this second venue will help ensure a broader audience for what promises to be amazing theater.  We will also present our next production, Right to Be Forgotten, at both venues in May.

In addition to winning the prestigious Drama Desk award for "Best Musical" in 1999, Parade received Tony Awards for both "Best Score" and "Best Book of a Musical." Written by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy), with a magnificent score by Jason Robert Brown (Bridges of Madison County), this enthralling show tells the heart-wrenching, true story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man living in Atlanta who was wrongfully convicted of the murder of a 13-year-old employee. 

Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring musical explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history, and I urge you to experience it with us.

Tickets are currently on sale for both the JCC MetroWest and the Sieminski Theater. Please order early for best seating.

As always, I thank you for your ongoing support.
