Area residents are invited to a blast-from-the-past community production of “The Awesome 80s Prom” Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7 and 8. The performance gets underway each evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Nelson Performing Arts Auditorium.  

Directed by Fred Ebert, NWC assistant professor of speech communications, the play promises plenty of laughs and fun for family members of all ages. Guests are invited to either travel back in time or simply sit back and watch the 80s drama unfold during this highly interactive production. 

Described as a “party in the style of ‘Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding’ and ‘The Donkey Show,’ set at Wanaget High’s Senior Prom...in 1989!” this play will allow attendees to relive their own prom experience. 

With prom characters inspired by 1980s cinematic favorites, all are competing for the titles of prom king and queen, and the audience decides the winners. 

The performance features a variety of actresses and actors from the following towns.

Billings: Alex Hunnes as Lloyd Parker

Powell: Heather Dillon as Patty Lascalzo; Madyson Riedinger as Heather Wellington; Kateri Schneider as Whitley Whitiker; Kailyn O' Rouche as the Stage Manager; Gabriel Pribylova as Inga Swanson; Alexandria Shuffield as Molly Parker; Dalen Brazelton as Michael Jay; Noah DeGrange as Nick Fender; Logan Raper as Mr. Dick Snelgrove; Eliana Karhu as Missy Martin; Wesley Patrick as Louis Fensterspock; Tair Mashanipov as Fez; and Izaiah Zapata as Dickie Harrington

Rock Springs: Jared Lange as Joshua Beef Befarowski

Worland: Dominic Damiano as Blake Williams and Isaabella Munoz as Kerrie Kowalski

Cost to attend is $5 or $4 with a nonperishable food item, which will be donated to the Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes food bank.
