Prom season is approaching quickly. For a lot of people, this means dress shopping, hair appointments, and lots of other really stressful preparations. The prom committee has been working tirelessly for the past few months to make this years prom great!

Junior and member of prom committee, Kyra Bachman, said that they have had to “choose the decorations they’re going to use, choose how they want the tickets to look, vote on themes, decor, centerpieces, and then actually decorate the venue on the day of prom.”

This year, prom is being organized by Mrs. Brokenshire and Mrs. Holman, along with the Junior prom committee. The theme they chose for this year is based off of Disney’s Tangled, the story of Rapunzel and her mystical adventure. It will be decorated very fairy tale like with elements of magic and fantasy. 

Senior Kara Weaver, commented, “As excited as I am for the Rapunzel theme, I would have rather had the red carpet or a Hollywood “Met Gala” theme. Prom preparations are always stressful, but I am still very excited. I can’t wait to see what the decorated venue looks like!”

Prom will be held at The State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg (300 North Street Harrisburg, PA 17120) on May 4th at 6:30pm. As parking may be limited, they are providing free parking at the 7th Street Garage (801 North 7th Street Harrisburg, PA 17130). In order to leave the parking garage for free, you must find a chaperone and get a validated ticket at some point during the dance. The parking garage is located about 8 minutes away from the museum, but the school has provided a map, as well as school police stationed around the area to help people find their way. Tickets are on sale in the box office for $20 until Friday, May 26th.
