Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

You Will Go To The Prom!

Nominated for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or off-Broadway Musical at this year's Drama League Awards!

The Prom transfers to Broadway after its 2016 World Premiere at Atlanta, Georgia's Alliance Theatre! Tony-nominee Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs the musical comedy, with music by Matthew Skylar. The production features the book written by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin, Beguelin also penned the lyrics.

Uplifting and extremely amusing with show-stopping dance numbers, this musical is about acceptance and being the star you were born to be!

What is The Prom about?

In a small town in Indiana, prom has been canceled! And it's not down to bad behavior or financial issues - it's because the high school has forbidden, a female student, Emma from bringing her girlfriend! When a group of quirky Broadway actors hear her story, filled with outrage they swiftly travel to the community in an attempt to correct the injustice.

However, their attempts at social activism don't go un-noticed and instead make the situation far worse then they could have ever imagined. The community erupts into chaos as cultures clash. Emma's future and the actors careers all hang in the balance.

Will prom go ahead? Will justice be made? There's only one way to find out...
