The Prom release date is expected to be in autumn 2020 and the plot of the movie will be based on the Broadway musical of the same name. The Ryan Murphy Netflix film does not have a trailer yet, but you can read on for everything you need to know about The Prom.
When is The Prom released?
According to TV Line, The Prom’s Netflix release date will be in autumn 2020.
Production on The Prom will reportedly start in December 2019.
The film was first announced in April on the Instagram of Ryan Murphy, who wrote: “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.
Who is in the cast of The Prom?
Ryan Murphy has assembled an incredibly starry cast for his version of The Prom.
Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Girls’ Andrew Rannells and Gavin and Stacey star James Corden will play a quartet of out-of-work actors.
These cast members will be joined by Ariana Grande, Crazy Rich Asian star Awkwafina and Key and Peele’s Keegan Michael-Key in supporting roles.
The main character of Emma, however, has not been cast yet and will be cast in a nationwide search.
What is the plot of The Prom?
Per TV Line: “The Prom centers on four down-and-out theater actors who head to Indiana.
“They help a teen whose prom was cancelled when she tried to bring her girlfriend as her date.”
Those out of work actors are lead by Dee Dee Allen (played by Meryl Streep), whose career is ended by a badly-reviewed musical about Eleanor Roosevelt.
Grande will play Alyssa, the popular daughter of the PTA head, Awkwafina will play a publicist, while Key plays the school principal and love interest of Allen.
Is there a trailer for The Prom?

A promo for Netflix’s The Prom is not expected until production begins.
However, there are a number of clips from the Broadway version on YouTube for those who want a taste of the feel of the movie.
