The Prom

Text reads, the PROM with letters sparkling in pink, blue, purple and green.

A Midwestern school district doesn’t want the spectacle of a school dance open to same-sex dates. So they cancel the prom. Spectacle arrives anyway in the form of some fading Broadway stars hungry for a publicity bump as they advocate for inclusive student participation. Who will have the last dance?
