The 2015 “A Night in Hollywood” prom will take place at The Meet Las Vegas on May 16 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

“We really wanted to go for a ‘Hollywood Glam’ theme. We’ll have a red carpet, but we’re trying to stay away from red because we want to focus on the glamour part of the theme. We’re emphasizing colors like silver,” Class of 2016 President Aliyah Zolett said.

Student Council has approximately 400 available tickets to sell for the event. Tickets for the dance will be on sale beginning May 4 at the starting price of $50. The cost of the ticket will increase to $60 on May 11 and students can purchase any remaining tickets at the door for $70. You must present your student ID in order to purchase a ticket.

“I’m really excited to see prom come together and have our vision be reflected in the event. Hopefully the seniors will like it,” Class of 2016 adviser Mrs. Laura Penrod said.

The first 100 students who purchase a prom ticket will be entered into a raffle to win a make-over, tux rental and more.

“I’m definitely going to prom because it’s my last year of high school and it’s the one night where all my friends and I will be able to dress up and have one last memorable night before we go our separate ways,” senior Zachary Wong said.

Non-SWCTA students are permitted to attend the event, as long as a guest pass form is filled out and returned to Mrs. Miriya Julian. Individuals who are over the age of 21 are not allowed to attend the event as a guest.

“I’m looking forward to going to prom this year and all the memories that my friends and I are going to make,” senior Alexander Lee said.

In addition, prom court nominations will begin on May 4. To nominate a fellow coyote for prom prince, princess, king and queen, students must pay one dollar for each nomination.

“I think what makes our prom different is our venue. It’s a modern kind of venue, because it strays from the wedding type of venues that most schools tend to have their prom,” Design Academy Senator Shaelyn Dieter said.
