Stage Performances

Each year the English Student Association puts on English Week to promote the department and its language programs. English Week is the perfect opportunity for English majors to bond, work as a team, and demonstrate their capabilities. Each year, the students put on a musical in mid-December.

2021  The Prom

In Indiana, at a meeting of the James Madison High School PTA, PTA president Mrs. Greene announces that the school's prom will be canceled because a student named Emma Nolan wanted to bring a girl to the dance much to the dismay of Principal Tom Hawkins who supports Emma, but is powerless to oppose the PTA's decision.

Meanwhile, four Broadway stars who are gradually forgotten or unrecognized gather in New York to find a cause that can revitalize their careers.

After finding Emma's story on Twitter, the actors departed to Indiana to help Emma not be bullied and discriminated against by her classmates, and let everyone know that homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone does."Love thy neighbor trumps them all"

At the end of the story, the actors decide to pool their money to finance an all-inclusive prom for Emma. The students also apologized to them and knew that it was wrong to discriminate against them, and each of the four stars gained a new acting life. Emma and Alyssa finally share a public kiss and everyone celebrates.
