We’ve got trouble, folks, right here in Indiana and when Broadway’s brassiest hear a student is unceremoniously sidelined from a small-town Indiana prom – and the press is involved – they are ready to kick-ball-change the world. A new musical comedy about the power of love (and a good 11 o’clock number), THE PROM is about so much more than just a dance.

THE PROM made its world premiere at The Alliance Theatre, Atlanta, GA, Susan V. Booth, Artistic Director, in 2016, where Variety raved, “Musical Comedy Heaven! A funny, loving and joyous musical,” and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution called the show “A crowd-pleasing spectacle and delightful good fun! A valentine to the outrageous egos of the Great White Way.”
