You think you understand how a man's heart beats -
And you don't know a thing...
It's our first show announcement of 2020 - and what a cracker it is! We're thrilled to announce that RicNic Oxford will be returning to the Old Fire Station from 19th - 22nd August with the gripping modern musical Parade.
With music and lyrics by acclaimed composer Jason Robert Brown, and a book by famous screenwriter and playwright Afred Uhry, Parade is a dramatization of an important moment in American history: the real 1913 trial of factory manager Leo Frank. Frank, who was Jewish, was eventually lynched by a racist mob - and the events surrounding the investigation and trial (sensationalised in the media) have been directly linked to the revivial of the (at that time) defunct Ku Klux Klan and the birth of the Anti-Defamation League.
This heart-wrenching tale is brought powerfully to life in the musical, which explores - through a soaring, colourful score and moving story - notions of love, endurance and hope against a backdrop of prejudice and tension. We can't wait to see what our talented RicNic Oxford team make of it!
Whatever your passion - whether you're a budding performer, technician or simply love musical theatre - there's a place for you at RicNic Oxford in summer 2020. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to read our latest updates, or drop the team a line to register your interest: email@example.com.
