The Awesome 80s Prom is the acclaimed interactive experience in the style of Tony n' Tina's Wedding set at the Wanaget High's Senior Prom...in 1989! All your favorite characters from your favorite '80s movies are at The Prom, from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the Hottie Head Cheerleader, and they're all competing for Prom King and Queen. And just like on "American Idol," the audience decides who wins, all while moonwalkin' to great retro hits. Come "Back in Time," and join the break-dance circle or just sit back and watch the '80s drama unfold. If you're lucky, you'll even get to dance with The Captain of the Football Team. And this time, you don't have a curfew!
