Their quest begins when they stumble upon a viral Twitter news article about a small-town high school in Indiana. Shockingly, the PTA canceled the prom after a student ( EMMA NOLAN portrayed by Alyssa Mirarchi ) requested to bring her same-sex girlfriend as her date.

Determined to change the hearts and minds of the townsfolk, save the prom, and silence their critics, these Broadway stars rush down to Indiana causing a chain of actions that will eventually help them rise above their own egos and promote a culture of inclusion and acceptance.
