Prom Ticket Prices

Now that spring is fast approaching, kids are getting more excited about prom. When prom tickets go on sale, people usually start to complain about the price of them, and how they don’t make sense. What people may not know is that there’s a lot that goes into deciding the price of tickets. 

Each year, the junior class executive board plans the prom and raises money to help cover the costs. The executive board of 2025 is in charge of planning the prom for 2024. 

“When it comes to choosing ticket prices we have a lot to keep in mind,” said Mrs. Audrain, co-sponsor of the Class of ‘25 Executive Board. “We have to think: how much will the venue, DJ, decorations, and photos cost? There are a lot of factors that play into it. Your ticket pays for your admittance to the prom, your food, and decorations.” 

A common question students ask when ticket prices are revealed is this–“Why is this year’s price so different than years past?” It tends to depend on a lot of things. 

“Our prices are based on how much the food and the venue cost,” said Mrs. Audrain. “Though our venue will be the same for upcoming years, different classes will choose different caterers. However, the more money we raise, the lower the price of tickets. We’re hoping the tickets will be $50-$55.” For all those wanting to attend prom, it will be held at the Collinsville Gateway Convention Center on Saturday, April 27 from 7 P.M.–10 P.M. The theme will be “Violet Twilight.” The theme is supposed to be reminiscent of a garden after dark, with a special purple hue.
