BWW Exclusive: DEBUTAUNT Returns This June Following Sold-Out Trial Run
Mary John Frank's spirited, rebellious satire on Southern Debs lifts the curtain on etiquette and excess for 10 performances only at Atelier Roquette (63 Commerce Street, Brooklyn) from June 11- 28 2015. For tickets, visit debutauntball.com or call 800 838-3006.
DEBUTAUNT takes guests into the rarified world of southern debutantes, as they primp and preen for the "most important night of their lives". The show is hosted by Mistress of Ceremonies, Martha McMillan, a steel magnolia who leads with a contagious smile and an iron fist, along with five darling debutantes.
They invite us into a world of extreme etiquette, social graces, cotillion style dancin', and pearls.
Director and choreographer, Mary John Frank, weaves together an immersive multi-media experience using dialogue, movement, film projection, and interactive vignettes. Guests will be coached on the art of posture, table manners, penmanship, and more. But even though the evening is intended to follow strict protocol, something is brewing under this perfect veneer. We become witnesses to a transformation as these young debutantes grapple with gender, tradition, and what it means to "come of age".
