Saundra Mitchell Hosts "Prom!"

All Emma Nolan wants before she graduates is to dance with her girlfriend, Alyssa, at their
senior prom in Edgewater, IN. But Alyssa still hasn’t come out to her mom and when the
school’s PTA – led by Alyssa’s mom – hears that Emma is bringing a girl as her date to the
prom, they threaten to cancel the dance completely rather than allow a gay couple to attend.
Enter Barry Glickman and Dee Dee Allen, two Broadway stars who decide to take up Emma’s
cause and get a little free publicity along the way. But when they arrive in Indiana, their good
intentions go quickly south. Written in alternating chapters, Alyssa and Emma share their tender
new love and the secrets they keep.
Inspired by the Tony-Nominated Broadway show, The Prom, local author Saundra Mitchell’s YA
adaptation explores Emma’s and Alyssa’s stories and the challenges of growing up queer in
