The Australian production will utilize the version of the musical that premiered in 2007 London's Donmar Warehouse.

Parade, which is set in 1913 Atlanta, GA, is described as such: "Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-born Jew, is put on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his employ. With the whole town screaming for justice, his only defenders are a governor with a conscience and his assimilated Southern wife who finds the strength to become his greatest champion. This mysterious and glorious musical tells the true story of a landmark American court case that provided one of the world’s earliest examples of sensationalist media."
