Last year’s “Enchantment Under the Springs” drew a sell-out crowd of 200 people wearing their cheesiest prom attire. Tickets are on sale now for the second annual adult prom — "Hollywood Edition" — on Saturday, May 10.

Adult prom returns, Hollywood-style

A sea of puffy-sleeved ‘80s-style prom dresses. A gaggle of “greasers.” A girl wearing fake braces. A couple in Harley Davidson leather. Sequins everywhere. That was the scene at last year’s “Enchantment Under the Springs” adult prom, where a sell-out crowd of 200 relived the greatest night of their lives.

Adult prom is back, and this year’s theme — “Hollywood Edition” — means more glitz and glamour and an opportunity to dress like a star. TV and movie stars and celebrities are all fair game, but old-school prom dresses and tuxes are also welcome.

The second annual “Enchantment Under the Springs” adult prom is 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday, May 10, at the John Bryan Center gymnasium, 100 Dayton St.  Advance tickets are $15 and can be purchased at IONA Boutique, Yellow Springs Brewery, Village BP, Dino’s Cappuccinos and Harvest Moon Bakery in Xenia. Tickets are $20 at the door — if the event doesn’t sell out beforehand.

Just like the high school version, there will be a cheesy photo backdrop for official portraits and a vote for Prom King and Queen. But instead of a flask hidden in a dress or tux, adult prom-goers can buy their alcohol at the dance, and this year there are even more alcohol options, with a second part and a separate bourbon tasting experience.

Adult prom is the annual fundraiser of the Yellow Springs Browns Backers with all proceeds going to support Yellow Springs Kids Playhouse.
