Annie Kalahurka, in collaboration with Liz Smith, The Villa Players at Thomas More College and New Edgecliff Theatre, is proud to present Ginna Hoben’s THE 12 DATES OF CHRISTMAS. The show will open at Thomas More College Theatre, Thursday, December 18th and run through Sunday, December 21st.
Annie Kalahurka, returns for her third year to revive her LCT Award nominated role as Mary in The 12 Dates of Christmas by Ginna Hoben!
The show traces the dating travails of Mary. After she sees her fiancé making out with his co-worker on national TV at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, she dumps him and then spends the next year being set up, hooked up, strung up, and fed up as she navigates her life alone as a New York actor in her thirties. Eric Minton of Shakespeareances.com has written, “Hoben has created a woman’s show to join the annual, male-dominated Christmas lineup, but like The Santaland Diaries, it is a tale of real life and holiday hope touching us all.”
Annie’s local credits include The Odd Couple at The Carnegie, as well as The Dragon, “Abraham Lincoln’s Big Gay Dance Party”, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Sideways Stories from Wayside School with Know Theatre. Kalahurka’s 2012 performance of 12 Dates, was praised by League of Cincinnati Theatre panelists, noting that “her command of the hour-long one-woman show showcased a mastery of comedy, drama, and multiple characters and voices.”
This year the show will be revamped by director Liz Smith. Smith says, “This piece is a tour-de-force for Annie Kalahurka. It has been a thrill to work on with her in the intimate thrust space at Thomas More College. Annie has an incredible knack for getting to the emotional heart of this character through humor and vulnerability. It’s a touching holiday tale, and a great girls’ night out!”
