She's no George Bailey! She's no Ebenezer Scrooge. She is, however, spicier than the both of them. Her name is Rosita, aka "Abuelita!" "Abuelita's Christmas Carol" makes a return to Austin' Ground Floor Theatre for a one-time 2020 performance. In this loving tribute to his maternal grandmother, Rosa Hinojosa, Alex Garza portrays a cast of dear and wacky characters including Lucas, Pedro, Feliza, and who could forget, the pet pig ghost named Agapito. A holiday treat for audiences of all ages.

Ground Floor Theatre believes in "theatre for everyone" regardless of ability to pay, so tickets are always "Pay What You Can". Tickets can be purchased at groundfloortheatre.org.
