“The Prom”


Beginning tomorrow evening (Nov. 2), Peppermint Creek Theatre Co. presents its rendition of the Broadway musical “The Prom.” It’s the company’s first show at its first permanent home base, the new Stage One Performing Arts Center at Sycamore Creek Church’s Eastwood branch.

“‘The Prom’ is a Tony Award-nominated musical that follows the hilarious and heartwarming journey of four Broadway stars whose glamorous careers take an unexpected turn. When their self-involved celebrity activism backfires, they find themselves in a small Indiana town rallying behind a high school girl who just wants to bring her girlfriend to the prom,” the theater wrote in a press release. “This heartwarming and uplifting musical promises an unforgettable experience, blending humor, passion and an electrifying soundtrack that will leave audiences dancing in their seats.”

Director Chad Swan-Badgero, Peppermint Creek’s artistic director, said the show fits well with the company’s mission to address and create a dialogue around current issues.

“‘The Prom’ couldn’t be timelier and more important as a celebration of love, inclusion and the power of individuals to make a positive change. We are thrilled to share this uplifting story with the Lansing community and hope that audiences leave the theater with a renewed sense of joy and acceptance,” he said. 

Tickets are $20 for the public and $15 for students, seniors ages 65 and older and military veterans. They can be purchased online at peppermintcreek.org or at the door the night of the performance.
