Here’s the 411. Maybe your prom wasn’t the bombdigity. Maybe you didn’t get the bodacious babe or the bohunk of your dreams. Maybe you didn’t get crunk on the dance floor—you fer sure have a chance at a do-over!
“The Awesome 80’s Prom” is coming in clutch (that’s cool for all you dexters out there) on Friday, May 31 at The Tailwater Lodge in Altmar, NY and continues on Thursday, June 6 at The Eis House in Mexico, NY and wraps up on Friday, June 14 at Virgilio’s Event Center in Fulton, NY.
Get amped, Director Derek Potocki has cast a sick team to play the best high school clichés including token nerd Louis Fensterspock (Norman Berlin III), beef head Joshua Beefarowski (Pablo I. Mendoza), cheerleader Whitley Whitiker (Jessie Dobrzynski), prom planner Melissa Ann “Missy” Martin (Jodi Halczyn), drama queen Dickie Harrington (Adam Schmidtmann), tag-along Molly Parker (Jade Burkhart), class president Michael Jay (Peter Fekete), obsessive goth Kerrie Kowalski (Alex Taylor) and football team captain Blake Williams (Donald DelPriore).
Don’t forget the snarky “Heathers” duo—Heather Wellington (Liz Walton) and Heather Wynters (Sarah Anson).
Plus, ditzy drama teacher Mrs. Patty Lascalzo (Stephanie Johnson) and pesky Principal Snelgrove (Joshua DeLorenzo).
Dress in your 80’s best (or worst) and get the red carpet treatment from our totally tubular photographer from Jen Marriner Photography. Get stoked and vote for Prom King and Queen. And, our live DJ will spin you “right round, right round like a record baby”…all night long.
So let’s wig-out and dance the night away!
“The real appeal of this pleasingly 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.” – The New York Times
