Milagro Theatre presents A Xmas Cuento Remix, written by Milagro’s Maya Malán-González, directed by Alex Meda, premiering November 29 and onstage through December 22.
It’s a modern-day, Latinx take on Dickens’ classic Christmas Carol, this adaptation features strong female leads, modern music, and plenty of holiday cheer.
In this version, Anita Chapa loses her job on Christmas Eve with her family about to lose their house. She must seek out help from her estranged Tia Dolores, who won’t be getting any sleep this Christmas Eve as she gets visited by edgy carolers who work to change the Scrooge inside, to remind her of the importance of family and traditions.
Milagro is one of three theatres producing the show as part of the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Others are in Cleveland, Ohio and Berwyn, Illinois.
Opening Night is Friday, November 29, 7:30 pm with Post-Show Reception catered by La Bonita. The play runs Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sunday at 2 pm, through Sunday, December 22.
