The sidesplitting holiday comedy The 12 Dates of Christmas stars Renita James, Aurora Theatre’s Education Coordinator, as Mary for the second year in a row. Hysterical laughter will fill the theater with this contemporary take on the holiday season. Audiences will watch Mary’s life unravel after seeing her fiancé, live on national television, plant one wet kiss on another woman. Very determined, she spends the next year trudging her way back into dating with set ups, hook ups and let downs to test her confidence. Teens and adults are invited to enjoy this hysterical one-woman show to find out if Mary settles for single or finds the man of her dreams.
“The 12 Dates of Christmas stands out as a holiday show in that it is simultaneously relatable and moving while keeping the audience cracking up,” said Megan Rose-Houchins, director of The 12 Dates of Christmas. “It revolves around a topic that everyone can connect to in a way that is appropriately crude and overwhelmingly funny. Starring a magical performer and filled with witty one-liners, it’s a show that never grows old!”
Written by American Shakespeare Center’s Ginna Hoben and directed by the talented Megan Rose-Houchins, Aurora Theatre’s funniest holiday tradition is back! This annual tradition is decked in full glory by the creative talents of Production Manager Daniel Pope on lights and sound, Andrew O’Neal as technical director, Sarah Thompson as scenic artist and multiple Suzi Award-winning duo Isabel and Moriah Curley-Clay on sets.
