The ALLIANCE THEATRE will have its pre-Broadway World Premiere in Atlanta, August 18 - September 25, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at promo shots and the cast in rehearsals below!

The Prom features a cast of Broadway favorites, including Tony Award nominee Brooks Ashmanskas (Barry Glickman), Tony Award-winner Beth Leavel (Dee Dee Alan), Tony Award nominee Christopher Sieber (Trent Oliver), Anna Grace Barlow (Alyssa), Caitlin Kinnunen(Emma), Martin Moran (Mr. Hawkins), Angie Schworer (Angie), and Atlanta localsCourtenay Collins (Mrs. Green), and Clayton Landey (Sheldon Saperstein).

Ensemble members include Mary Antonini, Collins Conley, DeMarius R. Copes, Kevin Csolak, Shelby Finnie, Josh Franklin, Damon J. Gillespie, Sheldon Henry, Josh Lamon, Becca Lee, Kate Marilley, Isabelle McCalla, Chris Medlin, Becca Petersen, Brendon Stimson, Teddy Toye, Aléna Watters, and Michelle West.

The Broadway-bound musical brings together an all-star creative team that includes direction and choreography by Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw, a book by Tony Award-winner Bob Martin and Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin, music by Tony Award nominee Matthew Sklar, and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin. The Prom is based on an original concept byJack Viertel.

In The Prom, Emma becomes an instant outcast - and a national headline - when her high school cancels the prom rather than let her attend with her girlfriend. Sensing a chance to correct an injustice - and maybe get some good publicity along the way - a group of fading celebrities takes up the cause, and invades Emma's small Indiana town. But their bumbling attempts at social activism make the situation far worse than they -or Emma - could have ever imagined. Cultures clash and the town erupts in chaos. The community's reputation, Emma's future, and the actors' careers all hang in the balance, until a true hero emerges to save the day. Uproarious and ultimately uplifting, this new musical proves that standing up for yourself - and inspiring others to accept their differences - can make you the star you were always meant to be.
