(BOWIE, Md.) – There will be marching bands, floats, and community groups participating in Bowie State University’s 2023 Homecoming Parade on Saturday, Oct. 7 morning led by Tony Award Winner Myles Frost serving as the Grand Marshall. Frost, a Bowie State student, has been recognized nationally and internationally for his performance on Broadway portraying music icon Michael Jackson in MJ: The Musical.
The parade kicks off at 8 a.m. at the Walmart on MD Rte 301 and ends at Macy’s in the Bowie Town Center.
Frost, a multi-talented performer, actor, writer, and music producer, sings and dances and tells those aspiring to work in the entertainment industry to follow their dreams and believe in themselves.
“Do not limit your future opportunities based on what you feel you are currently capable of,” said Frost. “Take the risk.”
In addition to Myles Frost, the parade will showcase community groups, student and alumni organizations, fraternities and sororities, faculty members, and staff throughout the high-energy event.
“This year’s BSU Homecoming Parade is special,” said Professor Tewodross Williams, chair of BSU’s fine and performing arts department. “With Myles Frost as the parade’s Grand Marshall, we know he’ll bring his energy that will permeate through everyone along the parade route.”
Frost is a senior at Bowie State pursuing a B.A. in Fine Arts with a concentration in music technology and is on track to graduate in December. In spring 2024, MJ: The Musical will open in London at the Prince Edward Theater in early March with Frost again playing the lead role of Michael Jackson.
