Synopsis: "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."
A national tour of The Prom will commence in February 2021, with the tour starting in Providence, Rhode Island.
The Prom Tickets are available now for performances through August 11, 2019.
