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.
