Filipino-Minnesotans Puts On "Debutante's Ball" At History Theatre

The Debutante's Ball

Swedish-Americans have Santa Lucia, Mexicans the quinceañera and in Minnesota, the Filipino-American community celebrates its young leaders with a cotillion on Valentine’s Day. 

Debutante's Ball, a new play, by playwright Eric "pogi" Sumangil uses these coming of age moments.  "The Debutante's Ball" gave a charming look at one of our Filipino traditions. In partnership with Mu Performing Arts, Sumangil's play focuses on the young people who feel the obligations and the honors of participating in the an event that memorializes their culture.
