The Community Theatre League (CTL) is thrilled to announce the regional premiere of the hit musical “The Prom,” opening June 14 and running June 14 through June 16, and June 20 through June 23 at their Mainstage Theatre. The show promises to be a vibrant, heartwarming, and humorous production that captures the spirit of inclusivity and love. This production is proudly sponsored by Diamond Drinks and the AIDS Resource Center.

“The Prom” follows four eccentric Broadway stars who are in desperate need of a new stage. When they learn of a brewing controversy around a small-town prom, they see an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the issue—and on themselves.

The town’s parents aim to keep the high school dance strictly traditional, but one student’s wish to bring her girlfriend to prom changes everything. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl to change the hearts and open the minds of the town’s citizens. The result is a love that brings them all together. “The Prom” masterfully blends humor and heart, delivering a classic musical comedy with an important message for today’s audiences.

Director Marie Fox, Music Director Amanda Haney, and Choreographer Kat Shondeck lead this talented creative team. The production stars Rubie Natal as Emma, Hannah McBride as Alyssa, Katie Conklin as Dee Dee, Steven Lindenmuth as Barry, Tim Hippensteel as Trent, and Abby Simon as Angie. A large and dynamic ensemble rounds out the cast, bringing
the town and high school to life with their energy and talent.

Seth Sponhouse, CTL’s Executive Artistic Director, expresses his excitement: “We are beyond thrilled to bring ‘The Prom’ to our stage. This musical is not only entertaining but also deeply moving with its message of love and acceptance. It’s an important message for our community, our nation, and our world.”

He adds, “The cast and crew have been working tirelessly to bring this story to life with all the humor, heart, and high-energy musical numbers that make ‘The Prom’ such a hit. This is a show that resonates with people of all ages, and we encourage everyone to come and experience this joyous production.”

Opening Night attendees are encouraged to dress in their prom best to add to the festive atmosphere of the premiere. “Feel free to come dressed as if you are heading to prom!” says Sponhouse. “It’s going to be a night to remember.”
