Emma didn’t want to be a newspaper headline or the face of a movement. 

She just wanted to take her girlfriend Alyssa to their high school prom. 

But just when it seems like she might persuade the hesitant PTA, four bumbling Broadway has-beens in search of relevance barge into Edgewater, Indiana to put a spotlight on the issue — and themselves. 

As the worlds of Broadway and Main Street hilariously collide, the courage of one girl reminds us all of the power of love to bring us together. 

With non-stop laughs and show-stopping dance numbers, "THE PROM" is a feel-good musical with a message that is even more relevant today.

RUN TIME: Two hours and twenty-five minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.
