Dustin Diamond, best known as Screech on the TV series Saved by the Bell, will now remain with the Off-Broadway production of The Awesome 80s Prom, at Webster Hall through August 28. The actor plays himself in the show.

The interactive nightclub experience is set at the Wanaget High's Senior Prom in 1989, and features archetypal characters derived from 80s movies, from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the hottie Head Cheerleader. They're all competing for Prom King and Queen, with the audience deciding who wins. The show includes retro hits like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!"

The Awesome 80s Prom was conceived and directed by Ken Davenport and written by Davenport and "The Class of 1989", a group of performers including Sheila Berezan, Alex Back, Adam Bloom, Anne Bobby, Courtney Balan, Nicole Cicchella, Mary Faber, Stephen Guarino, Jeff Hiller, Emily McNamara, Troy Metcalf, Jenna Pace, Amanda Ryan Paige, Brian Peterson, Jessica West Regan, Kathy Searle, Mark Shunock, Josh Walden, Noah Weisberg, Brandon Williams, Simon Wong, and Fletcher Young.
