The Prom: A Novel Based on the Hit Broadway Musical (Unabridged)
An honest, laugh-out-loud, feel-good novel inspired by the Tony-nominated musical The Prom, read by members of the original Broadway cast!
Seventeen-year-old Emma Nolan wants only one thing before she graduates: to dance with her girlfriend at the senior prom. But in her small town of Edgewater, Indiana, that's like asking for the moon.
Alyssa Greene is her high school's "it" girl: popular, head of the student council, and daughter of the PTA president. She also has a secret. She's been dating Emma for the last year and a half.
When word gets out that Emma plans to bring a girl as her date, it stirs a community-wide uproar that spirals out of control. Now, the PTA, led by Alyssa's mother, is threatening to cancel the prom altogether.
Enter Barry Glickman and Dee Dee Allen, two Broadway stars who decide to take up the cause and get a little publicity along the way. But when they arrive in Indiana to fight on Emma's behalf, their good intentions go quickly south.
Between Emma facing the fray head-on, Alyssa wavering about coming out, and Barry and Dee Dee basking in all the attention, it's the perfect prom storm. Only when this unlikely group comes together do they realize that love is always worth fighting for.
Read by Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla, with Beth Leavel, Joshua Lamon, and Tara Sands. Includes an interview of Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin, and Matthew Sklar from the musical’s creative team conducted by cast member Joshua Lamon.

A must read book for teen LGBTQ+.
A good supplement with the original cast recording of the broadway musical “The Prom: a new musical”. It’s about acceptance, respect, value of listening and balance of wit and humor.
