Cowley College’s Brown Center will be host to “The Awesome ’80s Prom” this weekend. The show will start at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16-18 in the Wright Room, located at 215 S. Second St.

Awesome ’80s PromThis interactive theatrical performance features characters inspired by ’80s movie favorites — “from the captain of the football team to the Asian exchange student, from the geek to the head cheerleader, and so many more,” states a release from the Cowley College theater program.

Everyone in attendance will compete for Prom king and queen, and the audience will decide who wins.
