My Own Prom Experience

My own prom experience in small town Illinois is less than stellar and one of those high school memories that is best forgotten. Please say that I’m not the only one who didn’t like prom!

Short story. I went to my senior prom ALONE and I sat at a table with the boys basketball team, while their dates were all out on the dance floor, playing poker with them for match sticks.

Long story. I helped to decorate for the prom knowing full well that I wasn’t planning on attending. The principal heard that I wasn’t going to the dance and called me into his office to discuss. He said that the Homecoming Queen (don’t get too excited, my entire high school was like a total of 80 kids) needed to be in attendance for the prom. Something about me owing it to my constituents. Ha! I told him that I didn’t have a date and he said that he would arrange for a guy from his town to take me. (The horror!!!) I said nope and went by myself.

Needless to say it was nice to finally be invited to the prom. And getting to take my own date with me. It’s always a great time having my husband as my plus one. Sure do love that Fox Theatre companion of mine!

And I got a pretty wrist corsage!

Thanks so much for inviting me to opening night, Fabulous Fox!

This is definitely a musical that everyone needs to experience. (Everyone being ages teen and up. See below.) There’s so much that can be learned by showing understanding, acceptance and love to everyone we come in contact with. We might have our differences, but we are all people who deserve to be treated the same.

While The Prom musical is inclusive and for everyone to learn from, just keep in mind that it does contain sensitive topics and language that might not be for younger audiences.

Add this one to your list of must sees. You’ll laugh, you’ll feel your emotions being tugged on and you’ll head home after with a lot of love in your heart.
