Walt Disney Studios has just provided us with the official synopsis for its upcoming teen dramedy Prom, written by Katie Wech. Wech, who has only Prom and a couple of episodes of the cable television program Stephen King’s Dead Zone under her credit belt, is also listed by IMDB as working on Wings, which appears to be another Disney project, based on the novel by Aprilynne Pike and set to star Miley Cyrus. The first in a series of supernatural romances for tweens, Wings centers around a fifteen year old named Laurel who ends up learning that her awkward stages are a bit more to deal with than most.
In Prom, set to debut in theaters on April 29, 2011, every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; “Prom” portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one “Prom.”
Prom‘s cast includes: Aimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell, Danielle Campbell, Yin Chang, Kylie Bunbury, Nicholas Braun, Jared Kusnitz, Jonathan Keltz, De’Vaughn Nixon, Nolan Sotillo, Cameron Monaghan, Joe Adler, Janelle Ortiz and Raini Rodriguez
