Class of 2020’s prom “When the Stars Align” will be on April 6 at the Old Ranch Country Club, a golf club in Seal Beach.

While students make plans to attend the Diamond Bar High School prom, selecting dresses and tuxedos and finding dinner reservations,  the prom committee is setting the event up and working out the fine details.

The Class of 2020 Spirit Committee has  chosen the theme of  “When the Stars Align.” To fit the theme, the venue will have decor resembling starry skies as well as silver and blue accessories and decorations to create the feeling of being underneath the stars.

The event will be held at the Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach,  Orange County.

The private golf course is a popular venue for weddings and other social events. The country club has a modern elegant feel throughout and includes a few lakes around the property. A perfect place to take prom pictures if you are in search for somewhere to take pre-prom photos.

“We have a beautiful location this year near the beach and it has a lot of amazing picture taking places as well,” junior Summer Wang, a member of the Spirit Committee, said.

The class of 2020 committee is working on getting a number of activities approved for this year’s prom.

Some of the activities planned for the  prom include air hockey tables, foosball tables, arcade games, karaoke, and a tarot card reader. The committee also plans to have photo booths, one of which will allow attendees to make their own picture flip books, an activity offered at previous school dances.

Students can also look forward to the desserts and appetizers that will be served at prom. The committee hopes to have a boba station and is still deciding on other food options.

“People should come to prom for the high school experience. You only have junior and senior year to really experience it so I feel like you may regret it if you don’t come,” Wang said.

Tickets will be sold for $90 per person with an activity card and $95 without. While online ticket sales began on March 11, ticket sales in the USB room started on Monday, with all sales ending April 2.

To purchase tickets in person, students must have their behavior forms filled out and signed by a parent. Online ticket purchases will also require students to fill out and turn in the behavior forms to the USB room no later than April 2.

Juniors and seniors planning on going to prom with a date from a different school cannot purchase prom tickets online. They must fill out the date pass forms that are available in the Guidance Office. The last day to purchase a ticket with a date pass will be March 29.
