On Christmas Day at 2 pm, ACT will present a traditional Christmas story from Mexico. The action takes place in the mountains, where Adelina and her family and the other villagers are preparing for Christmas Eve. As events unfold, Adelina finds that her family has nothing to present as a gift in the church at midnight which is a village custom. What happens next involves the miracle of giving at Christmas. Please join us if you are available for this ACT performance that will be followed by dancing the Mexican Hat Dance, and the singing of traditional carols. Feliz Navidad!
