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 producing team for THE PROM also includes Jim & Cathy Berges, Natasha Davison, Kimberlee Garris, Nelda Sue Yaw, Joelle Cosentino, Terry Schnuck, Reade Fahs, Joe Grandy, Jessica Lewis, Elliott Maise, Palitz-Smedes-Stern, The John Gore Organization, Lisa Morris, Cliff Hopkins, Chris Ketner, Ken & Nancy Kranzberg, Mike Kriak, Dan Stone, Three Belles & a Bob, and The Shubert Organization in association with Darren P. Deverna, Jeremiah J. Harris and Reagan Silber.

Tickets are currently on sale to groups (10+) at (866.302.0995). Single ticket on-sale for general public and additional casting will be announced shortly.

THE PROM made its world premiere at The ALLIANCE THEATRE, Atlanta, GA, Susan V. Booth, Artistic Director, in 2016.
