Thirteen o’Clock Theatre’s latest production, “Three Ghosts: A Christmas Carol” brings the classic holiday tale to life in an all-new, innovative way.
The local non-profit has created the opportunity for Chicago-based actor and director, Alejandro Tey to return to his hometown of McAllen and create the new play. A co-founder of Thirteen O’Clock, Tey is incorporating exciting physical staging through fight choreography and tumbling-like movement.
The entire show is based around the short, simple text from the original Christmas Carol. With this interesting and inventive take, Thirteen o’Clock is bringing a lot more action into the holiday story.
Aissa Guerra, a fellow Valley native and one of the actors in the show, has returned home to the RGV to perform for Thirteen o’Clock once again. Both Tey and Guerra graduated with theatre degrees from Northwestern University and work in the Chicago Theatre community.
The production holds the lessons and themes of “The Christmas Carol” up and presents them in a creative, fresh way. Thirteen o’Clock’s guarantee of quality theatre holds true once again for “Three Ghosts.”
So far, there are four scheduled performances of “Three Ghosts.” It will be presented on Friday, December 16 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, December 17 at 12 p.m. at the McAllen Public Library Auditorium. There are also two performances at McAllen Memorial High School Auditorium, on Thursday, December 22 and Friday, December 23 at 7:30 p.m.
“Three Ghosts” is a family-friendly show that is sure to be enjoyed by children and parents alike. General admission to the show is $10, and student admission, with ID, is $5.
