Plot summary

What is The Prom movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Prom" movie plot summary.

In Edgewater, Indiana, head of the James Madison High School PTA Mrs. Greene (Kerry Washington) announces the school's prom will be canceled because female student Emma Nolan (Jo Ellen Pellman) wanted to take a girl to the dance, defying their traditional beliefs and much to the dismay of Principal Tom Hawkins (Keegan-Michael Key), who supports Emma.
Meanwhile, in New York City, narcissistic Broadway stars Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden) are disappointed after their show Eleanor! The Eleanor Roosevelt Story closes on opening night due to negative reviews. They are comforted by Trent Oliver (Andrew Rannells), a Juilliard graduate who is between acting jobs, and Angie Dickinson (Nicole Kidman), a performer who has just quit her part in the chorus of Chicago. They realize Dee Dee and Barry need a cause to seem caring and selfless. After finding Emma's story on Twitter, they drive to Indiana with the cast of Godspell and publicist Sheldon Saperstein (Kevin Chamberlin).
At school, Emma is bullied and harassed by Kaylee (Logan Riley), Shelby (Sofia Deler), Nick (Nico Greetham), and Kevin (Nathaniel J. Potvin) for being a lesbian and for the cancellation of the prom. The actors barge into the next PTA meeting in favor of Emma and while Mrs. Greene is furious, Hawkins reveals he is a big fan of Dee Dee. Emma and her secretly closeted girlfriend, Alyssa, Mrs. Greene's daughter, meet in private and talk about Alyssa coming out to her mother.
The actors arrive at a motel and perform at a monster truck rally event, but are booed off the stage. Hawkins tells them the Indiana Supreme Court wants the school to hold a prom for Emma and invites Dee Dee to have dinner with him at Applebee's, where the pair bond.
