The Awesome 80’s Prom

Rover Dramawerks continues their 18th Season with the interactive comedy The Awesome 80s Prom by Ken Davenport. Performances will be at Rover’s theatre in Plano, located in Ruisseau Village at 221 W. Parker Rd, Suite 580, at the northwest corner of Parker and 75. Performances run July 26 – August 11 on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.

It’s 1989, and all your high school buddies are at the prom! From the captain of the football team to the foreign exchange student, from the geek to the head cheerleader, they’re all competing for Prom King and Queen…and the audience decides who wins! Travel back in time and join the breakdancing, or just sit back and laugh at everyone! The Awesome 80s Prom is a blast-from-the-past party in the style of Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding and The Donkey Show. Patrons are encouraged to attend wearing their favorite 80s throw-back fashions for a totally rad, immersive experience.

The ensemble cast includes Courtney Beyer, Rachel Carothers, Lizzie Combs, Selmore Haines, III, Sara Jones, Emory Lambert, Alyssa Lawhon, Soozy R. Martin, Isaiah McDaniels, Barrett Phillips, Drake St. Pierre, Nathan Thomas, Santosh Vijayakumar, Jessi Williams, and Nicholas Williams, playing all the 80s stereotypes.

Polly Harrison serves as director, with Cecily Warford as stage manager. Set design is by Kasey Bush, lighting design is by Kenneth Hall, and sound design is by Derek Behrens. Nathan Scott provides costume design, with props designed by Kristin M. Burgess.

Thursday, July 26 is Preview Night, with all seats $10.00 in advance online or “pay-what-you-can” at the door.
