Way back in 2019 Ryan Murphy announced that he was turning Broadway Musical “The Prom” into a Netflix Film which we know will hit our screens on December 11th – but now we have some new images of the film. Newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman will take the lead role in the film alongside an all-star cast that includes: Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells and Ariana DeBose. Other cast includes Logan Riley Hassel, Sofia Deler, Nico Greetham and Nathaniel J. Potvin.
The play premiered in 2016 and follows an Indiana teenager who wants to bring her girlfriend to her school’s prom; however, they are banned from attending but a group gets together to fight the injustice.
THE PROM is one of the most uplifting, heartfelt and special musicals I have ever seen on Broadway. It’s truly an original that celebrates the underdog and says in a loving spectacular way that LGBTQ rights are human rights. I feel a special connection to it because it’s set in Indiana, and that’s where I grew up, too.
– Ryan Murphy
Expect a trailer in the next month or so but for now here is the full cast list:
