“The Prom” Presented by Queen’s Musical Theatre

Queens Musical Theatre is thrilled to present the vibrant and heartwarming live performance of “The Prom,” a poignant and humorous journey that explores themes of acceptance, love, and the power of unity. Set against the backdrop of a small, conservative town in Edgewater, Indiana, “The Prom” follows the story of four Broadway actors whose glory days are seemingly behind them. In an unexpected twist of fate, they find themselves embroiled in the life of a young lesbian student barred from bringing her girlfriend to the high school prom. This captivating narrative brilliantly weaves together the highs and lows of adolescence, the struggle for acceptance, and the unyielding power of solidarity. With performances scheduled from Thursday, January 18th, through Sunday, January 28th, including special relaxed performances on January 20th and January 25th, this is an event not to be missed.

Audiences should be aware that “The Prom” tackles various sensitive topics with grace and authenticity. The production delves into issues of homophobia, microaggressions, anti-LGBTQ+ religious implications, parental rejection, bullying, and the complex nature of saviour complexes. While these themes are handled with care, they are integral to the story’s impactful message. The show also incorporates suggestive and sexual references, along with dynamic lighting changes and loud sounds, contributing to its immersive and emotionally resonant experience. This performance not only entertains but also provokes thought and encourages dialogue about important social issues. Join Queens Musical Theatre for this unforgettable experience that promises laughter, tears, and an uplifting message of hope and inclusivity.
