On April 11, juniors and seniors and their dates will be in for an elegant affair at the 2020 “Red Carpet Rendezvous” prom which will be at the Durham Museum on 10th and Farnam Streets.

The event is meant to feel like vintage Hollywood and the Junior Class Officers, who organize and host prom, have set their goals high.

“We want it to be grand and classy,” junior class officer’s president Richard O’Connor said.

The group plans to kick it up a notch in order to create a night that attendees will not forget.

“In addition to selecting a venue that has a 1920’s art inspired decor already, we’ve selected decorations and extras that will make guests feel like they are walking the red carpet at the Oscars,” prom coordinator Ranae Duncan said.

Some of those extras will include a long red carpet, high end vintage centerpieces and decorations, a catered in chocolate fountain with fruit and other light snacks, a sparkling grape juice tower, a red carpet photo opportunity and of course, Hollywood stars for each of the school’s seniors who purchase a ticket.

Tickets will go on sale April 2, for $25 each or $45 per couple. To purchase a tickets, students must be a junior or senior, however that junior or senior may purchase a ticket for their date even if they are a freshman or sophomore. For students wishing to bring a date who attends another school or has graduated already, permission forms will be available for them to fill out prior to purchasing the tickets.

The week leading up to prom will be spirit week for the whole school. Monday will be meme Monday; Tuesday will be ACT day for the juniors; Wednesday will be Villains vs. Heroes. Staff members will be allowed to choose their own fate. Thursday will be Roaring 20’s where everyone is asked to dress like they’re ready for a 1920’s party
