    SAVE THE DATE (and find one) FOR THE PROM!
    [FONT=&quot]Save the Date (and make sure to find one) for ?The Prom,? a retro-celebration to benefit the Seaside Repertory Theatre, a non-profit organization and the only professional year-round theatre company in Northwest Florida. ?The Prom,? which has been relocated to the Lyceum Lawn in Seaside, will be held Friday, April 18th at 7pm and will offer dancing to the party tunes of Hotwire, great food by Criolla?s, a full hosted bar complete with spiked punch, and crazy fun with absolutely no silent auction! The highlight of the evening will be the crowning of ?The Prom? King and Queen! Prom-goers are encouraged to dress reminiscent of their own high school prom so that attire will span the decades, or come as a ?Chaperone? dressed in normal party wear.[/FONT] Tickets to ?The Prom? are $100 and can be purchased by calling 850.231.0733 or at www.seasiderep.org. Reserved tables for eight are also available for $1,000 and must be reserved by phone. [FONT=&quot] ?The Prom? is sponsored by Dungan-Nequette Architects and Tracery Interiors.

    Yeah you won't need to dump your own flask in the punch bowl- it will be "pre-spiked"!!

    I have to commend whoever came up with the Prom theme. I can't remember the last time I was so excited about a party a month out. I just bought a dress on Ebay, and yesterday discussed recreating the Mariah Carey circa 1990 hair that was once my 'do with the girl at the salon. I'm so excited!

    Peaboy's wife and I rented dresses from a stripper for our 1989 Prom in good ole Freeport. I don't think Seaside is ready for us to venture down memory lane. ;-)

    I can still wear my 1988 prom dress. Are we getting together to do our big ol' hair?

    Let's please get the official list of who is going together, and I will need to set up a separate fund-raiser to rent/bribe a date.

    I looked at what was left of my old formals while I was in Houston. They were all still so cute, that I left them there. We are talking 36 year old dresses! :eek:

    I also have my mother's prom dress from 1958. It has been worn in Gainesville High School's last 2 productions of Grease--it's beautiful. Hail--If I run another couple of half marathons, maybe I can wear hers instead of mine!

    I'm so jealous. My mom took all of mine to Goodwill about three years ago. I was furious. She could've warned me! Today I was really cursing...those dresses are fetching $50 - $100 each on Ebay. I'd give anything for my 1988 Winter Social -- it was Victor Costa, black velvet with big red satin bows around the bottom.

    This is the best idea ever! :clap: I can't wait. If we have to stick to the theme of our own prom...I'd have to wear one of those 80's dresses with the big bows and all. Can I just change eras to the 50's because I like those gowns the best?
