Music by Matthew Sklar, Lyrics by Chad Beguelin, and Book by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin
Directed by John Gardiner

Trouble is brewing in small-town Indiana, when one high schooler wants to bring her girlfriend to the prom, against the rules of the PTA.

Four struggling Broadway stars band together to help small-town Indiana high schooler, Emma Nolan. Through the power of social media, the narcissistic Broadway stars discover that Emma is prohibited from bringing her girlfriend to the prom due to the PTA’s strict and problematic policies. This causes a ripple to rise up, leading to a fight for the prom Emma deserves. With comedic dialogue, a Tony-nominated score and dynamic choreography, hilarity and heartfelt joy ensue. Determined to fight for what is right (and center themselves in the warm embrace of the spotlight), the stars work together to give everyone a chance at love and a night they will surely remember.

The Prom first opened in 2016, and its message of inclusivity and resilience is growing to be more necessary every day. As Queer and Trans rights continue to be called into question in the United States, the students of the UCF season selection committee wanted to see a show on our mainstage that encourages allyship and champions compassion. The characters in this show come together in support of a young woman who's been denied her right to attend Prom with her girlfriend, showcasing the power that community can have to help us all heal, grow, and change. Everyone deserves to dance in joy at their Prom, and we invite you all to dance with us here at ours.
