The opportunity to bring the stories of Canadians and our history to life is part of the vision of the Canadian Music Theatre Project. Sheridan was proud to tell Marc Hall’s story and to host him at our Oakville Campus during the presentations of Prom Queen.
Prom Queen is the true story of 17-year-old Marc Hall. It’s graduation time and Marc wants nothing more than to take his boyfriend to the prom. But the Principal of the Catholic school he attends and the School Board Trustees won’t allow it. Suddenly, Marc finds himself fighting not only for his right to choose his prom date, but also for the right to be different and have his voice heard. A colourful lawyer gets involved, the media swarms and soon Marc is taking the Church to court, becoming an unlikely activist for gay teens everywhere.
