Enjoy a glimpse into the pageantry, customs, and teenage restlessness that are all part of the Valentine’s Ball and Presentation of Debutantes and Escorts.
Since 1978, Minnesota’s Filipino-American community has gathered for this annual affair which celebrates their vibrant heritage as Filipinos and Americans. This fun new coming-of-age play by local artist and former debutante escort Eric ‘Pogi’ Sumangil follows six teens as they prepare for this special event and connect with their Filipino heritage through stories, haranas (traditional Filipino love songs), the waltz and even a bit of hip hop, while finding the balance between tradition and assimilation, parental pressure and personal independence.
