In anticipation of The Prom arriving on Broadway, the new musical comedy is offering one lucky thespian (or former thespian) the chance to see the show and meet a member of the creative team. But you’ll have to sing for it.
The song from composer Matthew Sklar and lyricist Chad Beguelin explores the central character Emma's struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy as a teenager while becoming a national symbol for something much larger. Take a listen to the number, performed by Caitlin Kinnunen, below.
The Prom, directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, will begin performances October 23 at the Longacre Theatre. The musical tells the story of an Indiana high schooler barred from bringing her girlfriend to the prom—and the group of eccentric Broadway folk who infiltrate the town in an earnest, misguided attempt to fight the injustice.
