(FAIR LAWN, NJ) -- Old Library Theatre is presenting the New Jersey Community Theater premiere of the Broadway musical, The Prom. The closing weekend takes place April 21-23 with performances on Friday and Saturday evening at 8:00pm, and Sunday matinee at 2:00pm. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

The Prom, written by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin, with music by Matthew Sklar, tells the story of four fading Broadway stars, who are in desperate need of a new stage. When they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town Indiana prom - and the press is involved - they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue … and themselves. The conservative town’s parents want to keep the dance on the straight and narrow - but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. Now, Broadway’s brassiest are coming to join the fight and they are ready to kick-ball-change the world. The result is a hilarious and moving journey of culture shock and learning.

New York Magazine hailed The Prom as “smart and big-hearted” and the New York Times declared it “makes you believe in musical comedy again.”

The Prom is directed and choreographed by Eliah James Furlong, produced by Armanda Cerqueira, with music direction by Keun Daniels, and costumes by Amy Kurfist. Jennie Hughes serves as Assistant Director and Stage Manager, with Cici Roman as Assistant Choreographer as Stage Manager.

Director Furlong said “This cast is amazing! I don’t believe I could have asked for a better group of people to work with for my directorial debut. They all have completely brought themselves to the characters in this show. Each and everyone in this cast and creative team’s unruly hearts align with the themes of this show - acceptance, equality, love and understanding just to name a few. I promise you do not want to miss this show!!” Producer Cerqueira added “The message of this musical is so important and the commitment from this cast and creative has been visible every step of the way. I’m so privileged to be working with them all. When folks identify with the conflict of a story, it makes their motivation to show the resolution that much greater. This lovely cast is coming together to dance and sing in celebration because LOVE ALWAYS WINS!”
