This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts!

This hilarious play offers a vivid glimpse into the lives of a whole slew of characters. female and male, and their unique, individual takes on society. Sex, gender roles, changing mores, religion and political posturing are presented in a vastly entertaining fashion. The subjects broached and the methods to the madness are so affectionately rendered that both men and women will be rolling on the floor or, at the very least, guffawing loudly.
