A queer couple holds hands, their back turned to the audience in an empty gym near a disco ball. The Prom is in text above them.

The most anticipated night for every high school teen has never been so glittery, or inclusive. Variety says that The Prom is “so full of happiness you think your heart is about to burst.” 

When Emma wants to take her girlfriend to the prom, the PTA cancels the dance and her story goes viral on social media. Little does she know, four faded and eccentric Broadway performers are on their way to transform her small town of Indiana and throw her the prom of her dreams – albeit in an attempt to improve their own PR. What begins as selfish insincerity results in a fabulous story of growth and a whole lot of zazz! You will cheer for love with these over-the-top, fun characters in this hilarious musical comedy that entertains with show stopping dance and Broadway spectacle. Will you go to The Prom with us?
