Lindsay Mendez & Ryan Scott Oliver‘s ACTOR THERAPY is back at 54 Below to sing the score of the musical THE PROM, featuring music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Chad Beguelin and a book by Beguelin and Bob Martin.

A fabulously fun, award-winning musical based on an original concept by Jack Viertel, The Prom follows four well-intentioned (and out-of-work) Broadway actors as they travel to conservative Edgewater, Indiana and attempt to help a lesbian student who has been banned from bringing her girlfriend to their high school prom. The original production was a New York Times Critics' Pick described as “a joyful hoot…that makes you believe in musical comedy again” and Actor Therapy's concert version is sure to bring all the high-belting, high-energy queer frivolity you need to kick off your Pride month!

Produced and directed by Actor Therapy's Managing Director Mathieu Whitman (35MM: The 10th Anniversary Concert, Spring Awakening in Concert, Hair in Concert, Legally Blonde in Concert; all at 54 Below), Actor Therapy Sings The Prom will feature a number of fabulous Actor Therapy students and alumni performing alongside musical director Jason Wetzel (Into the Woods Broadway and national tour, Merrily We Roll Along) on the piano with a 4-piece band, including Jeremy Clayton (Spamalot, Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George) on reeds, Nick Potocki on guitar, Danny Weller on bass, and Derek Stoltenberg (national tours of The Prom and Mean Girls) on drums.

Featured performers include: Derek Alexander, Marin Asnes, Dylan Berkshire, Ryan Bronston, Sarah Armstrong Brown, Mackenzie Bruen, Winter Commander, Madeline Dalton, Hannah E. Feldstein, Meghan Fitton, Emily Foley, Marley Hall, Hays Hankinson, Charlie Keegan James, Betty Kasper, Kamryn Koerner, Nachi Lederer, Tori Jade Lopez, Wilson Loucks, Ryan J.
