DuBard School at Southern Miss Speakeasy Welcomes Everyone to the 1920s

Main Content

The DuBard School for Language Disorders at The University of Southern Mississippi invites you to travel back in time to the DuBard School Speakeasy – an evening affair reminiscent of the 1920s era.

The event will be held Thursday, Oct. 10 from 7-10 p.m. at Trent Lott National Center on the Hattiesburg campus. Swanky cocktail attire is required. All are invited to attend. Tickets are limited and available at $50 per person.

What can guests expect at the DuBard School Speakeasy? A password is required to enter the joint, which patrons will receive after purchasing their entry prior to the event. Once granted access inside, guests will experience the first stage of the Speakeasy where the atmosphere will be kept mellow as to not attract any unwanted attention.

After covering the house rules and the coast is clear for getting raided by the ‘fuzz,’ guests will be welcomed into the ballroom where a variety of “giggle juices” (prohibition-era cocktails) and 1920’s inspired heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. Upbeat jazz music will fill the halls for dancing, a photo booth will give guests an opportunity to dress to the era, and a good time will be had by all.

To get in on the secret, guests can purchase tickets online at www.usm.edu/dubard or call 601.266.5223 to learn more.
