Students can now purchase their prom tickets for $120 to experience a Midnight Express at the Museum of Science and Industry April 26.

“(Prom) it’s more than just a dance, it’s an experience, it’s fun, interactive, and very memorable,”  Student Council adviser Candace Fikis said.

Prom tickets will be sold Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday after school and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Student Activity Center.

Students can pay with cash, credits cards, or a check written to West Chicago Community High School.

“(Students) can’t buy tickets late or at the door. Last day to buy tickets is Saturday, no exceptions,” Fikis said.

As party favors, a water bottle is given out when tickets are purchased and the other is a picture frame for the photo booth pictures at prom.

This is the third time prom will take place at the museum but different exhibits will be open.

“The museum is huge. We love that place because there’s so much to do, it’s so interactive and there are so many picture spots. It’s a fun night,” Fikis said.  

For dinner, students will enjoy the “Taste of Chicago” which includes mini hot dogs and mini deep dish pizza, a “Southwest Station” for nachos, fajitas, and tacos, a mac and cheese bar, and a salad bar.

A link will be posted on announcements for song requests a week before prom.

“Everyone always loves or hates the music, but if you really like a song tell more people to request it,” Fikis said.

Students going to prom will report to the school at 5 p.m. and check in at the buses that will be lined up by entrance A.
