Story

What is the Story of The Awesome ‘80s Prom?
Set in the gymnasium of Wanaget High School, The Awesome ‘80s Prom is an interactive experience that puts audience members right in the middle of the 1989 senior prom. Just like a scene in a John Hughes movie, the Captain of the football team, the Asian exchange student, the head cheerleader, the geek and more hilarious characters are fighting for the title of Prom King and Queen—and the winner is chosen by the audience!

Critics' Reviews

"The real appeal of this nostalgic night out is that it will allow some members of the Atari generation to experience something once thought impossible -- enjoying the high school prom."
