The theme will be "Remains of the Day" and students are expected to dress in an appropriate fashion to recreate the party scene from the movie.

A jazz band as well as a string quartet will set the mood. Tickets are $10 per person, and non-residents are allowed to attend.


Jed Willard '96, who is on the Adams House committee, says be cannot stress enough how different this formal will be from those of the other houses.

"Adams House is different from the other houses because we maintain a certain degree of formality," Willard said.
