A Christmas Carol en La Frontera:
Producing Bilingual Work During Quarantine
An interactive presentation of the process of writing, directing, and re-writing (for radio) the classic, A Christmas Carol, for a Frontera audience. A Christmas Carol en La Frontera had its premiere in 2018 at UT-El Paso and had a deep impact on audience members from both sides of the Frontera, especially school audiences. COVID-19 further spurred the reimagining of this show; it shifted from the stage to the radio. Samples from the text, video clips, and photos will further the conversation.

Saving a Life: The Impact of COVID
on the Opioid Crisis
The national opioid crisis continues to ravage our nation with over 221 overdose deaths per day, nearly doubling since last year, and deeply affecting our neighborhoods, schools, and communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has only served to drastically hamper the already overly burdened access to treatment in our country. Addiction is an “equal opportunity disease,” and can strike any person, from any background, culture, or environment. Few truly understand the irrepressible anguish of the addicted person’s withdrawal that compels continued use. This presentation discusses the raw realities of addiction, the profound hope found in recovery, and the humanistic advocacy role that more police are engaging in as first responders to help those afflicted.
