Cutting Edge Theater presents "The Prom", onstage Fridays and Saturdays, June 7-22, 2024, at 8 p.m.

The musical follows four Broadway actors lamenting their days of fame, as they travel to the conservative town of Edgewater, Indiana, to help a lesbian student banned from bringing her girlfriend to high school prom.

The musical opens on Broadway, where Eleanor!: The Eleanor Roosevelt Story is celebrating its opening night with its lead cast members Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman ("Changing Lives"). The musical is bashed by The New York Times because Dee Dee and Barry are self-absorbed narcissists who do not understand their characters, and the show closes. To improve their image, the actors decide to take up "a cause" that will make them appear selfless. They team up with two other actors—Trent Oliver, a Juilliard School graduate down on his luck who has just been cast in the non-Equity tour of Godspell, and Angie Dickinson, a life-long chorus girl who just quit after 20 years in the musical Chicago. Searching on Twitter, they find Emma, an Indiana teenager whose prom has been cancelled because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as her date. Seizing the opportunity and some personal connection, the actors decide to go to Indiana to help ("Changing Lives (Reprise)").

Tickets are $32-$47 and may be purchased on Eventbrite at
