Founded in 2000, Teatro Vivo is dedicated to producing quality bilingual theater catering to all theater audiences and artists. The company has previously partnered with Sul Ross State University Theatre of the Big Bend, among others. After producing more than 22 plays, Teatro Vivo can add one more to its list this December.
Teatro Vivo presents “Cuento Navideño: Bah Humbug in the Barrio,” written by playwright Rupert Reyes. The play is a bilingual holiday comedy inspired by Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Set in an urban Latino community, the play focuses on Evangelina Cruz, a selfish business woman who has lost touch with her culture and those around her. After the ghost of her greedy former business partner, Teodora, pays her a visit, Cruz begins to remember the significant moments of her life. The play sprinkles aspects of the Latino culture, Spanish language and holiday traditions meant to be enjoyed by the whole community.
“Cuento Navideño: Bah Humbug in the Barrio” will premiere Dec. 8-18 at the Long Center for the Performing Arts located at 701 West Riverside Dr. Performances Thursday-Saturday begin at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Admission is $20, $15 for students and seniors.
