Have YOU ever wanted to go back in time? Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your high school was just like the high schools in all those 1980s teen flicks? Do YOU want to be a part of the wildest interactive show on the Strip?
Now is your chance!
We are looking for performers and people with personality who want to have fun. The setting is a High School Prom in 1989, and all of the characters one would anticipate seeing from a John Hughes film are in it! So dust off your Reeboks, slip on a Members Only Jacket, practice your Moonwalk, and come on down!
This is an audience-interactive show. Some parts require specific looks or abilities, but there's something for just about everyone.
The production is being directed by Ken Davenport, the creator of the show currently running Off-Broadway. Actors are paid $60 per performance.

Sirc Michaels Productions offers several types of live entertainment:
A) Shows designed for the enjoyment of Las Vegas locals put in spots frequented by the denizens of Sin City but not often seen by tourists
B) Productions designed for tourists looking to get a taste of what Sin City has to offer in entertainment and unforgettable experiences without clowns, magicians, or circus acts
C) Events and productions designed for everyone to take advantage of special occasions such as Halloween, Christmas, or - in the case of 2012 - the End of the World Party on December 21st
Sirc Michaels Productions works with the finest performers, technicians, directors, and designers to create unforgettable live entertainment. Unlike companies that bring in talent from out of the area or even overseas, Sirc Michaels Productions believes that the talent base in Las Vegas is vibrant and diverse enough to support any needs that arise for its productions.
Keeping with that philosophy, all auditions are open to the public and anyone interested in becoming a part of the excitement is encouraged to try out. First consideration is given to performers who live in Las Vegas. This gives undiscovered talent a real opportunity to find a pathway to a career in the arts.
