Ken Davenport Presents
The Awesome 80’s Prom

The Awesome 80’s Prom is a brand new blast-from-the-past interactive show in the style of “Tony ’n Tina’s Wedding” and “The Donkey Show” set at Wanaget High’s Senior 1989! All your favorite characters from your favorite 80’s movies are at THE PROM, from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the Hottie Head Cheerleader, and they’re all competing for Prom King and Queen.

Just like on “American Idol”, you decide who wins, while moonwalking to retro hits like “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!” So, dust off your leg warmers, tease up that hair and join the breakdance circle or just stand back and watch the 80’s drama unfold. Like Totally!

Saturday nights through April 23rd
Boarding 6:30pm, cruising 7:00pm-9:30pm, dockside dancing until 10:30pm

$75 per person includes dinner, entertainment, and gratuity.
