Entertainment Coordinator
You are responsible for the entertainment for the party. What was popular in music and dance during the time?  What other forms of entertainment were popular during the twenties (games, activities, etc.) that people at your party might participate in? What performers, artists, composers, etc. might you want to invite and/or hire to entertain at your party? Would you show a movie? If so, which one? You might want to play something to the audience or get a “record” to play. You could also teach a dance.

Fashion Coordinator
You are responsible for assisting the guests in choosing appropriate dress for the event. Since this is a formal affair, provide suggestions on how they should dress. Don't forget the accessories: hats, shoes, purses, gloves, ties, etc. Pay attention to the details (just like you do when you go to the prom!). Of equal importance, the fashion consultant must alert the guests on what not to wear; you don't want any of the guests showing up in anything out-of-date, unfashionable, or inappropriate!http://www.ladycynthia.com/lady/images/straw_hats/2112%20luzette.jpg

Guest Coordinator

You are responsible for making the guest list. You want a representative guest list of as many walks of life of the twenties as possible; it would not have been unusual for a known bootlegger to "hob nob" with the police commissioner, for example. You will choose at least three people living in the twenties from each of the following areas to invite: government/politics; the arts (i.e. painting, sculpture, classical music); popular entertainment (movies, Broadway theater, radio); sports; the business community; and the "mob." [minimum of 15 invited guests -- most of the people at these parties just show up anyway!] Your group should make an invitation to send, a list of invitees and a seating plan. On the back of each seating card you will write a description of that person’s role in society.
