Beginning in the spring of 2016, we ventured into the world of show-specific packs. We’ve offered Fun Home, Fiddler on the Roof (2015 Revival), and Dear Evan Hansen (all still available in our shop). We now present our first show-specific mini edition:
The Prom opened on Broadway in late 2018, taking audiences by storm with its hilarity and heartfelt message of inclusiveness. “They used to be the toast of Broadway. Now their careers are toast and they’re desperate for a new stage. So when these four stars hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town Indiana prom – and the press is involved – they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue… and themselves.”
This mini edition has just 36 cards (including some rare and super rare: novelties and interactive possibilities). Much of Squigs’ art is unique to this edition. Here is the what you can find in these packs:
The core of the edition features cast members and members of the creative team (direction, writers, music, design) as well as the show logo and show art:
Various scenes from the show are also featured in the core cards. The backs of the four scene cards combine to make up a fifth scene:
The selection of rare cards brings a lot of fun: A card featuring the show-within-the-show Eleanor: The Musical! with credits written by one of the show’s scribes, Chad Beguelin; lenticular (multi-image “3D” cards) featuring Emma and Alyssa, as well as a selection of protest signs; a foil card featuring the prom tiara; and a sticker set with iconic images from the show.
And for some interactive fun, two cards will secure finders a special prize. First, the cast album card has a hand-written code on the back. If you find this card, email us at the address shown with a photo of your code, and we’ll send you a CD copy of the original Broadway cast album of The Prom! Similarly, if you find a Promposal card, e-mail the unique code to the address shown, and you will get the prize listed. These prizes include apparel and other swag from the show!
The nine leads of the show have personally autographed a number of specially-designed cards that feature information about nine of the charities and initiatives that The Prom is partnering with:
We’re so excited to be collaborating with The Prom! And look for other show-specific mini editions on the horizon.
