DEBUTANTE BALL, BOUNDARY WATERS & More Set for RAW STAGES New Works Festival

History Theatre will once again partner with the Minnesota History Center to present four staged readings of new scripts that are currently being developed by Minnesota artists. This year's RAW STAGES New Works Festival will include a revised script by Eric "Pogi" Sumangil about Minnesota's Filipino community (Debutante Ball), along with three newly commissioned scripts from Carlyle Brown (Boundary Waters), Jeffrey Hatcher and Chan Poling (Glensheen), and Garrison Keillor (Radio Man).

Since 1978 History Theatre has produced over 100 world premieres. History Theatre works with the best local and national playwrights and composers to develop brave, entertaining explorations of all the histories that make up our diverse community. The RAW STAGES New Works Festival is a major part of History Theatre's new play development process which consists of staged readings of four scripts-in-progress, performed by professional actors and directors. Audience feedback is used to help shape the script as it continues to progress toward future production.

Debutante Ball » Wed, Jan. 15 @ 7 p.m.
by Eric "Pogi" Sumangil
directed by Randy Reyes
The local Filipino-American community hosts an annual Debutante's Ball, an event filled with pageantry and elegance - plus a fair amount of teen angst and rebellion. Through hip-hop and Filipino love songs, this new play explores the struggles between tradition and assimilation, parental pressure and independence.
