The Prom at Charleston Stage
The Prom, a brash new musical comedy that took Broadway by storm and lit up the screen in the Netflix adaptation starring Meryl Streep, comes to the Dock Street Theatre to open Charleston Stage’s 46th Season! From the creative team behind Elf! The Musical, this Drama Desk-winner and Tony-nominee tells the story of four Broadway has-beens in search of a way to restore their failing careers. They fly off to Indiana to help Emma, a 17-year-old who has been barred from taking her girlfriend to prom by her school’s PTA. Chaos, comedy, and catharsis ensue as the locals and Broadway divas alike dance around their differences until they discover that they’re all dancing to the same beat.
