Everyone would like to relieve his or her senior prom, if only to recreate a memorable slow dance or see if that tuxedo t-shirt holds up. Get nostalgic with this Groupon: for $12, you get one ticket to MHC's Senior Prom, presented by the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, on Saturday, April 21, at 4 p.m. at MHC Healthcare in Marana (a $25 value).
Marana's Senior Prom evokes the high school soirees of the '40s, '50s, and '60s with a vintage car show and big band orchestra sure to spur spontaneous jitterbugs and swoon-worthy slow dances beneath a wide-open sky. Festivities begin at 4 p.m., when cocktails from a cash bar prelude a 5 p.m. feast that guests can enjoy when browsing historical memorabilia from the Marana Heritage Conservatory. Gearheads can gawk at a revving retinue of vintage cars, including a 1949 Flathead Seda, 1941 Cadillac Convertible, and the police car from Mayberry RFD, which organizers obtained by saying it was "the only vehicle for the job" while ominously peering over their sunglasses. Led by revered trombonist Moises Paiewonksy, the 20-piece University of Arizona Swing Jazz Band will take the stage at 6:30, providing a rousing score to the crowning of this year's Prom King and Queen.
