RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway, Tony-nominated composer

Actors and audience interact in a 1950's high school. The lunatic plot, reminiscent of a bad drive in movie, involves competition for prom queen, an alien invader, a science student who turns his right arm into a hamburger, murders and other mayhem, all at an accelerating pace that overtakes all with hilarity.

PROM QUEENS UNCHAINED originated at the historic Village Gate Theatre in New York City in 1991. Produced by GH Inc.. it has enjoyed numerous productions around the country and abroad.
