Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, Ariana DeBose and Kerry Washington star in the Netflix film released in December.

James Corden, Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and more stars are singing and dancing into small-town Indiana to create a “kick-ass prom…for everybody” in the trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Ryan Murphy’s movie, The Prom.


The story follows New York City stage stars Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (Corden) who’ve just suffered a costly Broadway flop when they learn of an Indiana high-school student, Emma (Jo Ellen Pellman), who’s been banned from attending the prom with her girlfriend (Ariana DeBose). Seeking to resurrect their public images, they set off for the midwest, with cynical actors Angie (Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells). While the theater stars’ self-absorbed activism backfires, they ultimately join forces to give Emma a memorable prom where all are welcome.

The teaser trailer shows the Broadway stars taking the small town by storm as Emma just wants to go to the prom and celebrate with her friends.

The film, directed by Murphy from a screenplay by Broadway scribes Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin, The Prom also stars Kerry Washington, Keegan-Michael Key, Tracey Ullman and Mary Kay Place.
