AFTER its huge success in 2010, Oldham Theatre Workshop is reviving its teenage take on the Cinderella story.
This is an energy-infused piece of musical theatre, performed by some of the most talented young
actors, singers and musicians.
PROM! is an upbeat, modern rendition of a traditional fairytale, set in two schools in two parallel worlds –the magical school for Fairy Godmothers (Defixus) and the real-world school (Delawick).
Both are under serious threat of closure. Students in both worlds are heading towards graduation and Prom night.
And these two worlds are about to come together in an explosion of magic and music.
If you love the cheery energy of High School Musical, the magical essence of Harry Potter, and the irresistible joy of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, then you’ll love PROM!
Suitable for everyone (recommended age 7+) PROM! The Musical will be performed by some of Oldham Theatre Workshop’s finest young performers, and follows in the success of previous acclaimed musicals: 2017’s MTA-nominated ‘Tis Written In The Stars, and the previous staging of Prom! with its stellar cast back in 2010.
