Complete casting has been announced for the White Plains Performing Arts Center's upcoming production of Jason Robert Brown's Tony-winning Parade, which will play the New York venue Aug. 8-10.

Keith Levenson will direct the production with musical direction by Brent McGee and choreography by MK Lawson.

The cast will be headed by Jim Roumeles and Betsy Simpson as Leo and Lucille Frank, respectively, with Danielle Altieri Valdes, Shirin Clark, Jada Crump, Ruby Day, Ben DeMarco, Ross DeMarco, Victoria Dieck, Joseph Doino, Aiden Dreskin, Nashard Gales, Peter Green, Maiysha Jones-DeFreitas, Victoria Kulak, Brent McGee, Brian McNally, Casey O’Donnell, Jeremy Quinn, Larry Reina, Steven C.

Parade features a Tony-winning book by Alfred Uhry and a Tony-winning score by Jason Robert Brown.

The musical, which is set in 1913, concerns "Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man living in Georgia, [who] is put on trial for the murder of a young girl who works in his factory," according to press notes. "Already guilty in the eyes of the town, a sensationalist reporter and a janitor's false testimony seal Leo's fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience and his Southern wife who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion."
