Celebrating Acceptance and Authenticity
MAD Theatre of Tampa will be opening "The Prom,"
a musical that celebrates acceptance and authenticity even in
challenging times. With its powerful message and energetic performances,
"The Prom" promises to be the summer's biggest hit.
Inspired by a true story, "The Prom" follows a group
of actors from New York who travel to Indiana to help a high
school student whose school banned her from attending her prom
because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as a date. The musical
tackles important issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, prejudice, and
the power of community support.
"MAD Theatre of Tampa is thrilled to bring this heartwarming,
critically acclaimed musical to the Tampa community," said
Anthony Gilkinson, Artistic Director and President of MAD Theatre
of Tampa. "We hope that 'The Prom' will serve as a reminder
that acceptance and love triumph over hate and narrow-mindedness."
The musical features a talented cast bringing to life a variety
of memorable songs and dance numbers. With music by Matthew
Sklar, lyrics by Chad Beguelin, and a book by Beguelin
and Bob Martin, "The Prom" has been praised for
its catchy music, humorous writing, and heartfelt performances.
Tickets are now on sale for "The Prom" at the University
of South Florida’s Theatre 1, July 14 through 22,
