What: Chanhassen Dinner Theatres introduces “Prom Re-Do” — a night for anyone who’d like another shot at their high school formal. Make it more fun and come in your best promwear — get pics with the photographer at the step and repeat, enjoy refreshments, dance to music before the show and enjoy a glass of rainbow sherbet punch from the punch bowl, followed by an epic night with dinner and the hit Broadway show, “The Prom.” Prom Royalty winners will be chosen from the audience.
Why: Consider this your prom-posal for a Prom Re-Do. Didn’t get invited to prom? Didn’t go with who you really wanted to ask? Had a wretched prom night? Or maybe you didn’t meet the love of your life until many years after high school? YOU are invited—in the words of the show’s heroine—to “build a prom for everyone!” Rent a tux or just wear a suit. Pull that old prom dress out of mothballs … and if the puffy shoulders are feeling a bit snug, find another one (thrift store outing, anyone?) OR just come as you are, as you’re comfortable, and with whom you want to be with — and that is the whole point.
Who and Where: Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, the beloved Twin Cities institution and longest-running dinner theater in the country, has been putting on the ultimate “dinner and a show” for more than 50 years. Now, the hit Broadway musical, “The Prom,” is on stage through June 10. Come dressed for a special night at The Prom where anyone attending can be King, Queen — or anything in between!
When: Thursday, May 25, at 5:15 p.m., join the pre-theatre reception in The Club with a cash bar, complimentary refreshments (including Rainbow Sherbet Punch) and a DJ. Pick up a pre-purchased wristlet corsage or boutonniere. (Ask the box office for more information when you buy tickets.) Dinner seating begins at 6 p.m., and the show at 8.
Tickets: If you accept the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres Prom-posal, pick up tickets for Prom Re-Do and Dinner’s On Us (that’s free dinner for you and your guest)! Use code PROMREDO to get $63 tickets for dinner and a show. And remember, pre-order a corsage when you buy tickets.
