Prom Queen The Musical at The Other Palace

Prom Queen The Musical comes to The Other Palace

On 2 July, the brand new musical, Prom Queen The Musical, will receive two workshop presentation at The Other Palace.

The show is inspired by the true story of Marc Hall – a Canadian teenager who took his district School Board to court when they refused to allow him to take his boyfriend to prom. The precedent-setting case was met with an international media storm. And from it, the blue-haired teen became the face of a generation fighting for equality.

Prom Queen The Musical is a fun and uplifting show where Marc has to learn to be his own hero, and fight society for the right to be himself and help others while he’s at it.

The Other Palace workshop presentation will be directed the theatre’s artistic director, Paul Taylor-Mills. The cast will feature Tony-nominated Lauren Ward (Matilda The Musical), Nathan Amzi (In The Heights, Rock of Ages), Caroline Sheen (Mary Poppins, Les Misérables) , Luke Bayer (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), and Natalie Douglas (The Beautiful Game).

Prom Queen The Musical’s book is by Kent Staines, with music by Colleen Dauncey and lyrics by Akiva Romer-Segal, and Mary Young Leckie producing. Kent and Mary previously created the much-loved Canadian TV movie Prom Queen: The Marc Hall Story back in 2004.

This workshop presentation follows its run at The Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montreal, Quebec (2016) after development workshops at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton, Ontario (2015), The Canadian Music Theatre Project (CMTP) at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario (2014) and a Playwright Residency at Young People’s Theatre in Toronto, Ontario (2008). And it precedes Prom Queen The Musical’s planned Broadway run.

The Other Palace is currently hosting the sold-out Heathers The Musical featuring Carrie Hope Fletcher as Veronica Sawyer which received a workshop presentation last year.

Prom Queen The Musical will play at 3pm and 7.30pm on 2 July at The Other Palace.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
