If you are from the 80's expect to be disappointed at this event. The cast screamed most of the time and in my opinion no one was dressed like true 80's. Not one gal with BIG hair. Worse was the crowd at the event. Unless you are a girl...continued

Hilarious! I went with a bunch of girl friends and laughed all night. I would definitely recommend this event for groups of girls who are down to retro it back to the 1980s.

You basically stand up the entire time while they do a short skit every half an hour or so. After awhile I just got really bored. The drinks and candy are ridiculously expensive.

AWESOME is a great word to discribe the event! My boyfriend and I went, not knowing exactly what to expect but dressed the part. He wore a throw back Member's Only jacket, black T, jeans, red All Stars and 1980 shades. I wore a blk mini dress, hot...continued

It's exactly what they said. It's Awesome, it's an 80's Prom. What more could you ask for? Don't be shy, go ahead and wear that 80's outfit - it's worth it. I recomend you get good and liquored up before you arrive, since the drinks inside are a...continued

The event itself was entertaining. Fun. I expected more 80's and thought they had also had some early 90's in there. But it was nice.

This is a fun event if you go with a group and are willing to bypass a little corniness.
Be prepared to entertain yourself and your group dancing to 80s songs and you will be mildly amused by the actual performance.

We had so much fun! I will be getting a group of friends together and going again. Anyone that likes a couple of hours of great music, great entertainment and lots of fun will love this show.

The cast stays in character throughout which is cute, but I found the event too be a little weak.

From the moment you walk in you are greeted by the "Wanaget High" H.S. principal, other school staff, and cast of characters from 1989 H.S. students ie the nerds, jocks, exchange students, cheerleaders, tough guy etc who intermittently perform for...continued

My suggestion would be that this event is meant for young people (25 or less). It's a little too silly for anyone above that age. I think it would help if you drank a lot so as to lower your standards if you want to enjoy the festivities.

A fun night, all stereotypical 80's characters were present; although, the venue/crowd was smaller than I anticipated. We laughed and danced all night.
