The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Ginna Hoben

November 1 - 16, with YouTube Celebrity Deena Marie Manzanares as Mary and Marylynn Ehrengard, Tamara Johnson-Howell, and Angela Trusty as the Doo-Wops


SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah’s only women-centric theater organization, Pygmalion Theatre Company (PYG) will produce the hilarious show, The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Ginna Hoben on November 1 - 16, 2013.  Described as “Bridget Jones meets Carrie Bradshaw,” 12 Dates is a humorous look at dating set against the backdrop of the holidays. YouTube celebrity Deena Marie Manzanares will be Mary, the play’s main character. 12 Dates runs November 1 - 16 in the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center’s Black Box. 

“Anyone who has been thrown into the dating pool as a fully formed adult will understand the plight of Mary,” states Barbara Gandy, Director. “As Mary says in the play, “‘the whole point of the Rebound is to weed through the dregs, the ones who could never work out, the frogs.’ Love can’t be forced, no matter the efforts of one’s well-intentioned and meddling family.  And, then, as is often the case, love unexpectedly comes on its own holiday schedule.”

Tickets for 12 Dates are $20. Tickets purchased the day of each performance will be $25. $10 student tickets are available the week of the performance, and 2013-14 PYG season subscriptions are $30 per person, just $10 per show. Tickets are available at 801.355.ARTS (2787), online at pygmalionproductions.org, or in person at any ArtTix outlet.
