Prom is just around the corner! With such an exciting event happening it’s good to know all the details. Well, you’re in luck, because I did all the research for you.

Prom will be held on April 20 at the Germania Place in Chicago. It will be from 5 pm to 10:15 pm. Make sure to arrive to RB at/before 5 pm and go directly to the cafeteria. Buses will be provided for transportation to and from RB.

Individual tickets will be sold for 90 dollars and couple tickets will be sold for 180 dollars. The last day to purchase prom tickets will be April 13th, so make sure to plan ahead!

“The tickets are 90 dollars and they include transportation there and the dinner at Germania Place,” said prom sponsor Carey.  

Guests are allowed to come, and guest passes can be found in your school email as a PDF or in the front office. All guest passes are due by April 12th.

The theme for this year is “A Tale as Old as Time.” The prom court will be nominated on the week of April 9th, and the Prom King and Queen will be nominated on the arrival of the students at the Germania Place, before all the dancing and fun begins.

In previous years, students have complained about the floor space, but this year it should be bigger and better.

“When we went to see Germania Place, we really liked that it had two rooms, one of the rooms could be used as a dance area and it was a really large room… that’s something we’ve had from past students, they’ve complained about not having enough dance floor space, so we thought this place was a good opportunity to provide a good dance place for our students,” said Carey.

There will be hors d’oeuvres, a dinner buffet with a vegetarian option, dessert, and unlimited refreshments.

“We have not finalized our selection quite yet, but it will a buffet style. So we will have a chicken option, a vegetarian pasta option, and then just some side vegetables,” said Carey.

All students and guests will be expected to abide by the student handbook codes. If anyone is found under the influence of any controlled substance there will be a police officer and a school safety liaison present to handle the situation.

Let’s have fun and have a magical night RB!
