The Awesome 80's Prom is a brand new blast-from-the-past interactive show in the style of 'Tony and Tina's Wedding' and 'The Donkey Show' set at Wanaget High's Senior Prom…in 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!

    I was just having a conversation with some very close friends about the fact that I have been craving the past.
    I’ve been feeding myself hits like “Karate Kid,” and “Back to School,” non stop for the last few weeks. I’m dying for the feeling of safety the 80’s represent to me. This is weird instance of synchronicity, I think, to have the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to this thing. Combining two things I love, (80’s and Portland) I would adore the opportunity to go. And if it makes any difference at all, I’d be bringing someone named ‘Brad.’ He feels very strongly about his name representing just about every douchey arch nemisis in every 80’s flick. He’s learning to own it.

    I would LOVE to attend this magical 80’s night on the waters of Portland. A few of my friends went a few weeks ago and raved about it for days. This is exciting

  3. Brian Vranizan January 31, 2011 at 3:06 pm #

    I want to win this so bad for my wife’s birthday and we just got married about 1 month ago and would love to finally celebrate our new marriage with a romantic dinner cruise

  4. Daniel January 31, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    I’d like to win this for Valentine’s Day. You see, there’s this girl I’m trying to impress…

  5. dana r. January 31, 2011 at 3:38 pm #

    Wow!! what fun this would be. the 80″s were freaky and i still have some costumes i can wear for this cruise. would love to win and send ya some crazy photos to post.

  6. Karisa Graf January 31, 2011 at 3:40 pm #

    Looks like so much fun!

  7. Jamie Stewart January 31, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Because I’m turning 37 Saturday. I want to do something epic.
    Pretty Please?

  8. Sarah K January 31, 2011 at 3:53 pm #

    My first prom was lame so now’s my chance to get Footloose & Fancy Free!

  9. Jennifer January 31, 2011 at 3:54 pm #

    I was the too-cool for mall bangs hippy girl and my husband, who was one year older than me and who I had a terrible crush on, was the geeky sensitive new-age guy with the Breakfast-club asymmetrical hair do. I would love to win these tickets and re-do it the right way- big hair and stirrup pants!

  10. Amy Kelter January 31, 2011 at 3:55 pm #

    Like, oh my god, I so need to go see this! Would totally make my birthday complete. Didn’t make it to a real 80’s prom as I was a few years too late into this world, however I did live through the 80’s and this sounds hilarious! Hook a broke girl up!

  11. Katy January 31, 2011 at 4:00 pm #

    I would love to go because I was born in 85 but I wish I had been in my 20s then. My mom had no appreciation for the 80s, but I love them! I’d totally represent the goth/underground/punk scene at this Prom.

  12. Mindi January 31, 2011 at 4:11 pm #

    I would LOVE to go to 80’s night! I’m never able to get my fix of 80’s dancing as I have my kids every Friday night… and this seems to be the only venue for 80’s night on Saturdays. Fun!

  13. Deva McCoy January 31, 2011 at 4:12 pm #

    My Buddy Spencer, who should be the new Superman, is in this show! He rocks, go see it!

  14. Michelle T. January 31, 2011 at 4:19 pm #

    I would love to dress up in one of my old 80’s dresses, do my makeup and hair in a crazy retro style, and dance the night away to all of that great music I remember. Gag me with a spoon!

  15. Joe M. January 31, 2011 at 4:46 pm #

    I’m a huge 80’s fanatic and frequent the 80’s video dance attack whenever I get the chance!

  16. Carrie January 31, 2011 at 5:14 pm #

    I want to go to that! I’ll even rock the hairport to make it happen!

  17. Ben January 31, 2011 at 6:22 pm #

    I never went to prom.

  18. Ben January 31, 2011 at 6:23 pm #

    I never went to prom. By choice. By choice!!!

  19. Eric January 31, 2011 at 6:36 pm #

    My prom was lame, this one sounds like it would be much more fun. This time I would also have a date that is actually interested in going.

  20. Carolyn January 31, 2011 at 6:45 pm #

    Having graduated from an alternative school, I never got to attend a prom. Those featured in films like Pretty in Pink were always my go-to fantasy of what prom could’ve been like had I gone. And been a decade or so older.

  21. Leonard January 31, 2011 at 7:56 pm #

    I’d love to come!

  22. Prom Princess January 31, 2011 at 10:06 pm #

    With my red hot 80s dress and a date who’ll rock the dance floor, we’ll give the prom queen & king a run for their crowns! ‘Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance, well, their no friends of mine…

  23. Ted January 31, 2011 at 11:35 pm #

    Unfortunately, I never made it to my high school senior prom so perhaps this will be a hot tub time machine opportunity.

  24. Lori February 1, 2011 at 1:00 am #

    I never did prom,
    that’s the t’ime that I’m from.
    I’ll dress like the best,
    put my boy in a vest,
    under his suit.
    We’re gonna look so cute!!
    I thought I missed my chance
    to go to a dance
    that is the prom.
    It’s go

  25. Lori February 1, 2011 at 1:02 am #

    nna be the bomb!

  26. Beth Ragel February 1, 2011 at 8:34 am #

    Because I want to live out my Tiffany vs. Debby Gibson fantasy. I would dress as Tiffany and my hubby could dress as Debby Gibson.

  27. Matthew February 1, 2011 at 11:09 am #

    I’ve always wanted to go to something like this. My girlfriend and I haven’t been able to do much recenlty and this would be a great addition to her birthday gift.

  28. Jennifer Jee February 1, 2011 at 4:52 pm #

    So I’ll finally have somewhere to wear my Vuarnet France t shirt?

  29. Kaylin February 1, 2011 at 9:45 pm #


  30. Kazzy February 2, 2011 at 10:34 am #

    Dude, sign me up!!! I’ll bring my 80s prom outfit!

  31. Tommie February 2, 2011 at 10:34 am #

    Dressing up like Kelly Kapowski and Zack Morris if i win!

  32. Zach Chupa February 2, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

    I should get those tickets because the only karaoke song I ever sang was ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ with sunglasses on in Top Gun form……which I am both proud and terribly ashamed to admit. Talk to me, Goose!!

  33. Katie February 2, 2011 at 7:36 pm #

    No one loves the 80s more than me!

  34. Ian February 3, 2011 at 7:00 pm #

    The 80’s is the best decade in American history. I grew up in the 80’s. I love the 80’s.

  35. Travis February 3, 2011 at 8:17 pm #

    Who doesn’t love the 80s!?! I’d love to go!

  36. Jessica Erin February 3, 2011 at 10:19 pm #

    I went to prom with my best friend because no one asked us to go. When we got there all the guys were so shocked and freaking out because they figured we must have already had dates. Boo! We ended up spending the night stealing dates and breaking hearts. Wild girls make prom more interesting!!!

  37. kevin February 4, 2011 at 9:07 am #

    Sounds cool, I just hope the 80’s hair-band member is represented. Spandex, torn jeans and some kind of pirate-looking shirt should be there to represent us former glam-rockers.

  38. Christine February 4, 2011 at 3:16 pm #

    Wake me up before you go go…
    I want to go to the 80s prom oh..
    Wake me up before you go go…
    80’s dancin ALL night!

  39. Emily February 7, 2011 at 3:37 pm #

    I would love to go to the 80s prom! I love me some boats and I LOVE me some 80s night! My prom date for my senior prom sucked. He didnt pay for dinner, I did. He didnt drive, I did. He basically did nothing but be grungy and suck at life. This would be redemption time for me, and no worries, I’ll ask a new, not sucky date to this prom!

  40. Marc February 7, 2011 at 7:14 pm #

    Oh Oh Oh pick me! I am the costume king. Please give me a reason to make an outfit. I’m sure this love boat needs a captain.

  41. Malinda February 8, 2011 at 6:17 am #

    Sounds like a bunch of fun. Prom is always the highlight of the year.

  42. Nikk hansell February 8, 2011 at 4:33 pm #

    This would be a great thing for my roommate to attend and have a blast and not be comsumed by the valentines events going on all weekend

  43. Michael February 10, 2011 at 1:08 pm #

    It’s really too bad I missed the chance to win. With my Tom Sellick mustache and my Burt Reynolds chest hair, I’d be a hit.

  44. Sydney February 11, 2011 at 8:28 am #

    Life is unfair.
    The main injustice in my life personally is the fact I was born in 88 and therefore never got to experience all the beauty of the 80s. I try to recreate the 80s often but crystal ballroom 80s dance parties aren’t cutting it. I. Need. Something. Epic.
    Please help bring a glimmer of justice to my yearning soul.

  45. Sherry February 11, 2011 at 10:16 am #

    I LOOOVVVEDDDD the 80’s. My girlfriend just went to an 80’s party and I was so envious… ahhhh the flock of seagull hairstyles.. the lace.. the neon… I WANT TO GO!!

  46. ren February 11, 2011 at 6:55 pm #

    The best thing about the 80s was cocaine and greed. I will greedily snort cocaine off your girlfriends’ cleavage all night long. Then I’ll do some awkward tweaky white guy breakdancing. Please give me at least two tickets.

  47. Lisa February 11, 2011 at 10:41 pm #

    My husband and I just moved to Portland with our family. We are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary on March 1st. I am an proud skoochies girl from Seattle (I know Portland had a skoochies renunion too). I love everything 80’s and this would be a great way for my hubby and I to celebrate a milestone 15 years together. We would love to win tickets to the March 4th cruise.

  48. Celeste Miller February 14, 2011 at 12:15 pm #

    Hi I would like to attend the 80s prom because my mom has told me how awsome her child hood was and the 80s has the best music. I would like to attend the best cruise ever because I was born 1988 and I would like to flash back those years. My brothers birthday is coming up march 14 and would like to do something that’s so different then going out for dinner and that’s it.

  49. Lori March 10, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

    I was such a wall flower in high school. Give me the chance to rock it now! :)

  50. Mark Bauser March 11, 2011 at 11:39 am #
