Prom is a bittersweet experience—though it celebrates the end of a chapter in teenagers' lives, it also enforces a "last dance" that legally prohibits its attendees from ever dancing again. Retroactively revoke such rules with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get two tickets to Fighting Chance Productions' performance of The Awesome 80s Prom (an $88.50 value) at the Vancouver Alpen Club on Victoria Street. Choose between the following dates:
- Friday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m.
- Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m.
The Awesome 80s Prom whisks would-be-seniors back to 1989 to relive the decade of excess in all its stonewashed glory at the Wannaget High Senior Prom. Taffeta-clad guests will get to moonwalk and pop 'n' lock alongside the captain of the football team, the geek, the head cheerleader, the rebel, and other teenage archetypes, before casting their vote for prom king and queen at the end of the dance. A prom-court election held every night will bestow one lucky dancer with the coveted title, so competitive guests will want to don their best studded glove and skinny tie before bathing in a bucket of blue eye shadow and donning a Frankie Says Relax T-shirt sewn together from Members Only jackets and Rubik's cubes.
