COLLIDE Theatrical presents…
"CLASS OF '85"
October 9-19, 2014 at the Southern Theater
Remember your favorite movies from the 80’s? "The Breakfast Club?" "Pretty in Pink?" "Sixteen Candles?" COLLIDE Theatrical will transport you back to a time where neon reigned supreme with the debut of their high-energy, completely original dance production “Class of’85”…where the secrets hidden behind high school stereotypes are unmasked and the fight to win Prom King and Queen is derailed, with a little help from the live audience.
Choreographed and Directed by COLLIDE Artistic Director Regina Peluso, the show features eight professional dancers, two vocalists and a four-piece live band.
Each production will also feature a complimentary bar hosted by Anheuser- Busch throughout the evening.
80’s costumes are encouraged but not required for attendees - there will be a Best Dressed Audience Member Award given every night, an 80s dance party at intermission and much more.
The Opening Night Celebration on Friday, October 10th will feature Red Carpet Photos and Glam Blushing where make-up artists will give guests a totally radical 80s look.
