Won second place in the Beverly Hills Theatre Guild Play Competition for Youth Theatre.

Prom night has not been fun for Imena Hart. She fought off her date, tore her dress, broke her high heel, left her glasses at home and her mother won't stop calling.

Dillon McGinty's not having a ball, either. His date wasn't named Prom Queen, so she got drunk and accused Dillon of not being fun anymore.

This unlikely pair meet in the woods on a moonlit night in their fancy clothes. They tell the truth, share secret wishes and find out what's behind the "uncool" Catholic girl and the linebacker Prom King.

Together, Dillon and Imena create their own prom night magic.
