About The Prom

The story follows four fading Broadway stars who are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town Indiana prom—and the press is involved—they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue…and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the dance on the straight and narrow—but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. Now, Broadway’s brassiest are coming to join the fight and they are ready to kick-ball-change the world. This high-energy musical displays the importance of acceptance and unity and The Strawberry Hill Players are so incredibly grateful to be able to perform it.

Strawberry Hill Players

The Strawberry Hill Players are the drama club at Stamford High School. We are composed of very talented actors, singers, dancers, and all-around wonderful people (if we do say so ourselves)! Our club includes two parts: first, the theater sector, in which performers, our costume crew, and tech troupe put on plays and musicals for the community to enjoy. Second, we have SHIP, the Strawberry Hill Improv Players, who bring hilarious improv comedy to life in their productions! Each year we have productions that include a fall play, senior scenes, Knight of Cabaret, and a spring musical. We have won awards at the Connecticut HALO competition in past years, including: 2019 Best Performance by a Cast in an Ensemble Play for Noises Off; Best Comedic Female Performance in a Musical and Best Contemporary Musical for the Addams Family; 2020 Best Contemporary Play and Best Scenic Design for Elephants Graveyard; 2021 Best Male Standout in an Ensemble Play for Our Place; 2022 Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical for Curtains. We have also competed at CDA, The Connecticut Drama Association, in past years as well, where we bring compete a 45-minute play against other schools.
