Aurora Theatre holiday classic “The 12 Dates of Christmas,” returns November 26-December 23

Aurora Education Coordinator Renita James to star in delicious one-woman show

Celebrate the holiday season with Aurora Theatre’s annual tradition “The 12 Dates of Christmas,” lighting up Lawrenceville November 26 – December 23! The spirited production will provide laughter aplenty, as audiences are swept away on a whirlwind adventure into the mishaps of one woman’s attempt to get her jingle back in the wonderful world of dating. Written by American Shakespeare Center’s Ginna Hoben, the delicious one-woman show will make spirits bright with its festive bundle of laugh-out-loud entertainment! 

The 12 Dates of Christmas” will star Aurora Theatre Education Coordinator and Apprentice Company graduate Renita James as Mary, the unlucky woman who sees her fiancé kiss someone else while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. Over the next year, she’s set up, hooked up, strung up and fed up as she reluctantly stumbles back into the dating scene.  Will she find Mr. Right in the New Year, or will single be her new style? Teens and adults are invited to find out during the limited four-week engagement.

“The beauty of ‘The 12 Dates of Christmas’  is that it gives a whole new meaning to ‘holiday classic’ with its one-liners, quips and knee-slapping humor,” said Megan Houchins, Director. “It’s a show that is meant to be a little crude, very relatable, always funny and, at times, touching. With a new set, director and leading lady, we will bring a fresh take on the show, so even if you have seen it before, you will want to see it again!”   

Led by Producing Artistic Director Anthony Rodriguez, the talented design team consists of the award-winning duo Isabel and Moriah Curley-Clay (Set), James M. Helms (Lights), Daniel Terry (Sound/Technical director) and Sarah Thomson (Scenic Artist).
