The Great Gatsby meets McNick Prom

The 2016 Junior/Senior Prom takes place on April 16 at RSVP on Wards Corner Rd.  Ask any senior, and he or she will tell you that the prom theme is a big deal.  The senior class voted to have this year’s theme as “The Great Gatsby.”

The Great Gatsby is a novel and a movie based around a young millionaire, Gatsby, and his obsession with getting back with his former lover, Daisy Buchanan.  It takes place during the 1920s, so many girls could wear dresses that look as if they came from the Gatsby time period.

Senior Josh McSwigan, and the rest of student council came up with this theme by “asking around” for ideas and the top two were Great Gatsby and Masquerade.  They then sent out a survey and Gatsby was the more preferred theme by the students.

“I think that the juniors and seniors will remember this prom because Gatsby is timeless, and we will be able to remember it for the rest of our lives,” McSwigan said.

The music at the dance will not be affected by the theme, but McSwigan has heard of many girls planning on wearing Gatsby themed dresses.

The evening includes dinner, dancing, and the announcement of the Prom King and Queen, chosen from the court that includes: Jacob Cheek, Mitchell Hartwell, Connor Higgins, Josh McSwigan, Nicholas Robben, Will Vogelgesang, Jonathan Wenzel, Bailey Bramble, Claire Daly, Sydney Evans, Sierra Meyers, Maggie Schulhoff, Emma Smith, and Brittany Taylor.

The tickets are $37.50 per single person, or $75 per couple and the ticket price includes dinner.  Dinner starts at 7 p.m. and the latest you can arrive for dinner is 7:30 p.m.  The dance begins at 8 p.m. and ends at 11.  The King and Queen will be announced at 9:30 p.m.
