Netflix have now released the first full trailer for the Netflix film musical adaptation of The Prom.

Directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story), The Prom features an all-star cast including  Kerry Washington, James Corden, Ariana DeBose, Keegan-Michael Key, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and Meryl Streep.

Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal, the head of the PTA has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa. When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie and Trent, another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

The Prom played on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre in 2018-2019 and featured music by Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer), book by Chad Beguelin (Alladin, The Wedding Singer) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone, Slings and Arrows) and was directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw (Aladdin, Something Rotten, Dreamgirls). The show received six Tony Award nominations.

The Prom is released on Netflix in the UK on 11 December.
