"Frank smartly used the age-old ceremony as a context to examine contemporary gender roles and what it means to come of age in our modern society, all while throwing one heck of a party."

DEBUTAUNT is an immersive dance-based show in which audience members are invited to attend a southern debutante ball. We're drawn into this rarefied world as darling debutantes primp and prepare for their transition into "women of society." Thematically the show explores tradition, etiquette, and gender roles. DEBUTAUNT is made possible by producers, Bettina Barrow, Lydia Thew, and our fiscal sponsors, The Field. More about our fantastic cast and crew here.
