Join the Wagner College Theatre as it finishes out the school year with “The Prom,” playing in the Main Hall auditorium April 27-29 and May 4-7.
Inspired by true events and written by Matthew Sklar, Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin, “The Prom” celebrates love, acceptance and perseverance.
The plot follows a group of actors as they try to rehab their reputations by supporting Emma, a teen from Indiana whose prom was canceled because she wanted to bring her girlfriend. Their quest to change hearts and minds is marked by mishaps, comedy, tears and self-acceptance.
Adapted into a 2020 Netflix movie starring Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Keegan-Michael Key and Kerry Washington, “The Prom” is a joyful Broadway hit not to be missed!
