Get your tickets to 'The Prom'
April 28, 2023
It’s prom season, especially in Chanhassen, where it has been going on since February. The musical, that is.
Chanhassen Dinner Theatres outside of Minneapolis is featuring “The Prom” on its Main Stage through June 10. “This uplifting, hilarious musical comedy dazzled Broadway audiences with its old-school song-and-dance energy and message of acceptance, and now it’s doing the same at Chanhassen,” the company reports.
Based on a true story, a small Indiana town is rocked when a group of parents and school officials try to prevent high school student Emma from bringing her girlfriend to the prom by canceling it. The national media spotlight draws to the town four fabulous but fading, ragtag Broadway stars looking to lend their skills to a worthy cause — and to raise their own profiles, and a whole bunch of fun follows with big, splashy song and dance numbers and a story to warm your heart.
The Tony-nominated show has only recently been licensed to regional theaters across the nation, and Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is among the first to produce it. More appropriate for those age 11 and above. Dinner and show ticket range from $73 to $98. Call 952-934-1525 or visit ChanhassenDT.com.
