"Parade the Musical" opens tonight at the Leaf Theater at 8 p.m., a production of the Quincy Music Theatre.

The production is based on a true story and is directed by Eric Hurst, with musical direction by Bryan Richards. Lead actors are Anthony Methvin and Rachael Adams.

"Parade" is based on the actual case of Leo Frank, who is falsely accused of killing 13-year-old Mary Phagan in Atlanta in 1913. The play, written by Alfred Uhry, opened on Broadway in 1998 where it garnered a Tony Award for Best Original Score.

The play includes strong words and images not appropriate for children. It is filled with comic overtones.

Tickets are available by calling 875-9444 or at the box office between 5 and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can also buy tickets online at www.qmtonline.org and at the door.

Ticket prices are $16.50 for adults, and $13.50 for students and seniors.

The show runs Feb. 20-22 and March 1, with showtimes at 8 p.m. for Friday and Saturday performances, and there is a 3 p.m. Sunday performance as well.
