Danika Leal returns this year as Tiny Tina in “A Tejano Christmas Carol” playing Dec. 6-10 at the Pharr Community Theater.

The Pharr Community Theater will present the play “A Tejano Christmas Carol” for a second year. 

Pedro Garcia, CEO and artistic director has been directing the theater company for the past 10 years and also plays the role of Mr. Codos, the equivalent to Charles Dickens' “Scrooge.”  Many of last year’s cast are returning, including Danika Leal as Tiny Tina,  Adan Rodriguez as Beto Gonzalez, Joel Gutierrez as Martinez, doubling as the Ghost of Christmas Future, and Armandina Sesin as Adelita, the Ghost of Christmas Present.

“Our Christmas play has a modern day Rio Grande twist and, of course, all the intrigue of Dickens' original Christmas story, including the three ghosts, the children and their families and the battle between good and bad and an outcome that surprises everyone,” Garcia said.

This fun and entertaining play is also a tribute to the mighty Rio Grande and its nearly 1,900-mile journey that begins in Colorado and ends in Brownsville. “So many people take our most precious water source for granted, but in reality without it, we would be lost,” Garcia said.
