About The Prom

Emma just wants to bring her girlfriend to the Prom. It’s already hard to navigate a relationship drama as a teenager. When the PTA of Emma’s small-town Indiana School cancels the Prom to prevent the lesbian couple from attending, the story spreads like wildfire on social media and the press. The buzz catches the attention of a group of recently out-of- work actors who storm the town looking for the spotlight but find so much more when they are caught up in the fight for true love and equality.


To PBKNY Members

PBKNY cordially invites you to an exclusive viewing of The Prom!

We will be meeting before the play to receive an introduction from fellow PBK member, and producer, Jane Dubin. Location for this pre-event discussion to be announced. Suggestions for this meeting place around the theatre area are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you all in January!
