The Prom—with Music by Matthew Sklar, Lyrics by Chad Beguelin and Book by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin—will be co-directed by Don Hill and Daniel Keeling, with music direction by Trevor Bourland. The Prom follows four Broadway actors who journey to the conservative town of Edgewater, Indiana, after learning that the town's local high school has banned Emma Nolan—a lesbian student—from bringing her girlfriend to the dance. Drama Desk Award winner for Best Musical and six Tony Award nominations, Variety magazine states: "The Prom is so full of happiness that your heart is about to burst."

Generous support for this production is provided by the Robert and Lorna Cohen Endowment for Excellence in Drama, Theatre Guild, and Claire Trevor Society.
