The Awesome 80s Prom, now in its 6th year at the famed club Webster Hall welcomed Dustin Diamond, best known as Screech from the hit TV series "Saved by the Bell," on Friday, May 21st for six weeks only through June 26th. The show's conceiver and director, Ken Davenport, revised the script and created a special role for Diamond to play - the role of Dustin Diamond himself. BroadwayWorld was on hand to shoot the rehearsal and Diamond's performance debut.

Dustin Diamond is best known for starring in the memorable role of Samuel "Screech" Powers in the television show "Saved by the Bell," continuing the role in the college spin-off series, "Saved by the Bell: The College Years." In addition to this show, he also appeared in a number of game shows and reality shows including "The Weakest Link," "Celebrity Boxing 2," and "Professional Wrestling." He has also appeared in films including Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star. Dustin has also performed stand-up comedy for several years and wrote the book Behind the Bell.

While New York audiences continue to party like it's 1989, The Awesome 80s Prom, the Off-Broadway phenomenon, has also enjoyed runs in Boston (still going strong!), Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Chicago as well as Korea. Over the last five years, over 80,000 wine coolers were served, over 160,000 packs of pop rocks were consumed and over 330,000 attempts at "The Worm" were tried by folks attending The Awesome 80s Prom.

The Awesome 80s Prom is the acclaimed interactive experience in the style of Tony n' Tina's Wedding and The Donkey Show 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.
