In anticipation of The Prom arriving on Broadway, the new musical comedy is offering one lucky thespian (or former thespian) the chance to see the show and meet a member of the creative team. But you’ll have to sing for it.


Through the musical’s partnership with the Education Theatre Foundation, the recently launched contest encourages hopefuls to submit a video performance of the number “Dance With You”—either with a provided track, a cappella, or even with an original arrangement. A randomly selected winner will receive roundtrip tickets to New York City for two, a two-night stay, tickets to The Prom, and a behind-the-scenes look and one-on-one session with a member of the show’s creative team.

The song from composer Matthew Sklar and lyricist Chad Beguelin explores the central character Emma's struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy as a teenager while becoming a national symbol for something much larger. Take a listen to the number, performed by Caitlin Kinnunen, below.

The Prom, directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, will begin performances October 23 at the Longacre Theatre. The musical tells the story of an Indiana high schooler barred from bringing her girlfriend to the prom—and the group of eccentric Broadway folk who infiltrate the town in an earnest, misguided attempt to fight the injustice.
