To prom or not to prom? That is the question! The student body leaders at Lowzund High bicker and argue about various prom themes. They finally decide to combine all of their ideas into one to create a medieval-futuristic-under-the-sea dance. But when self-proclaimed drama-geek, Dante Allegro, is rejected by the arrogant, text-messaging-obsessed cheerleader, he uses his persuasive abilities to cancel the whole event. Now, the noble-hearted student body president, Beatrix Holiday, must come up with a scheme to rescue what she believes is the defining moment in their young lives. To help win back the prom, she must utilize the intelligence of Chester (the school's resident brainiac), Tanner (the charismatic captain of the football-team), and a brooding, Goth-girl named Lee (who secretly likes Tanner). Mixed-up romantic misunderstandings abound in this laugh-a-minute comedy about that wonderfully stressful event: the prom!

Behind The Scenes

PLAYWRIGHT WADE BRADFORD TALKS ABOUT

HIS PLAY, “PROMEDY”

 

Q. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS PLAY?

A. "Promedy" came about in several ways. I had been kicking an idea about a comedy about the prom. (Which is basically how I came up with the title, by squishing those two words together.) Next, I wanted to write about students and the different ways they communicate. That's why text-messaging, comic deception, and miscommunication are a large part of the story. Finally, I wanted to create a play that was just plain funny.

 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE PLAY? WHY?

A: I love Dante's rants and Beatrix's monologue in defense of the prom. I think those two characters will be fun to play.

 

Q: WHERE DID THE CHARACTERS COME FROM? ARE THEY BASED ON PEOPLE YOU KNOW?

A: Dante is an egotistical drama geek and a self-proclaimed eccentric. He's basically patterned after me. The other characters are a combination of my own inventions and references to people I have known over the years.

 

Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?

A: Even though some of the characters do and say ridiculous things, I hope that I have created a play that shows the joys and frustration of high school life, and that strange tradition we call the prom.

 

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?

A: Thanks to the good folks at Eldridge. I strongly encourage aspiring playwrights to submit their work to this excellent company.
