Spiking the Punch Bowl. For Springfield High's 1959 prom, four potential prom queens are roped into providing entertainment for the evening, offering the songbook of the time as the girls try to one-up each other with hilarious consequences. For Act II, we journey ahead to the 10-year reunion and see how the nation and the music changed in a decade.

Bring Your Corsage. You likely couldn't find a better venue for this interactive show than The Village Playhouse's cabaret-style seating. "It's ridiculous," says creative director Keely Enright. "It's as if you're walking into your prom." The crowd gets a few chances to get in on the fun, including a vote for prom queen.

Baby Boomers' Romy and Michelle. The 10-year span provides two very distinctive musical eras, from "Mr. Sandman" to "Respect." Enright says, "If you went to the prom in the '60s, you'll love this show." But Wonderettes' young cast has also drawn interest from 20- and 30-somethings who shoop-shoop with the best of them.
