Broadway Camp 2023 Presents “The Prom”

Book and Lyrics: Chad Beguelin
Book: Bob Martin
Music: Matthew Sklar

Four eccentric Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue…and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow—but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl and the town’s citizens and the result is love that brings them all together. Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, THE PROM expertly captures all the humor and heart of a classic musical comedy with a message that resonates with audiences now more than ever.

Our students put on a Broadway-style show from scratch. The actors – students. The production crew – students. The orchestra – students. With the help of theatre professionals, these students learn the different aspects of putting on a full-scale musical on the MainStage at Proctors. Four weeks of hard work and dedication ended in three public performances which showed just how talented our local theatre students are.
