Do something different and have a totally radical night out! Grab your friends and come ready to enjoy a 2 course dinner, unlimited drinks, dancing and have fun solving the mystery!
The year is 1989, and Pine Oaks Valley High is holding their annual prom! The 80s was a totally rad decade, only the most bangin’ kids are voted to be prom king and queen. But before the prom king and queen could be named…tragedy strikes!
It’s now Pandemonium at the Prom! As the Murder Mystery deepens, can you find the culprit? Or will the perp book it, and get away with Murder?!
Come dressed in your wicked 80s outfit – put on that wild prom dress, or go a little overboard with the hairspray! Think fluoro, shoulder pads and the 80s versions of the high school cliche/stereotypes (geeks, jocks, valley girls etc).
