With their high school career coming to an end, the students of Mayhem High
find themselves battling it out over grades, popularity, affection, class rankings
and what they all have been focused on for years…
who will be awarded the prom king and queen title?
Will it be the class president who is looking to extend his reign past the
student council? The pompon captain who has used her moves
to land more than a prom court nomination? Or possibly the math
team captain who is desperate to make his name
in something other than academics.
As the night unfolds, the royalty will be rewarded and an innocent life
will be claimed. From the preppie to the punk rocker, the spaz to the stud,
the jock to the jilted—all are suspected although only one is to blame.
Can you find the culprit in this crazy madness that is
filled with neon, naughtiness and narcissistic behavior?
Join These Totally Tubular Teens
and Far Out Faculty For a Night Of
Mullets and Mayhem.
