Holiday Show '08:
The UnXmas Story & The Eight: Reindeer Monologues

Thursday at 4:30 & 7:00 p.m.


Directed by Elena Garcia

I am writing to you from New World School of the Arts in Miami, FL. I am the assistant to the dean in the Theater Division. New World School of the Arts is the magnet arts high school for Miami-Dade County and a B.F.A. conservatory through Miami Dade College and the University of Florida.

Our senior high school students have requested to put up a student run production of The UnXmas Story. They would like to do 3 performances in total. Their proposal has not yet been approved, it is still in the evaluation phase. Before final approval can be given, the department needs to know what the royalties will be. I did a quick search on the internet to see which company holds the rights for The UnXmas Story and was not able to find the correct one. I was however able to find you webpage where it gave your e-mail address as a form of contact to inquire about rights and royalties. Ahymara Gonzalez agonza23@mdc.edu


Doing this show was an easy reminder (and a much needed one) of why I do theatre. I didn't have a big part in the show, but I was given a lot of room to "ham it up" and really make the time I was onstage memorable. My personal favorite was giving tours before the show. Prior to entering the theatre to see the show you had to take a tour around "santa's workshop" (the 9th floor). This was all unscripted and very interactive. If you saw the show then you know I was the Jewish Elf, so for the tours I donned a brooklynese dialect and showed off places like the Fuitcake Destruction Room, the Coal Mine, and the Jewish Community Center. I just had a lot of fun. ---Alexis
Yes sir, that's one of my kids from school. We did the show at New World School of the Arts in Miami. It was an amazing success. We transformed the the ninth floor into Santa workshop and had the elves give tours to the audience before they could enter the theatre. We did the full Eight. The 2 male actors play all the male roles. Then I had a transitional team of elves and misfit toys. The Show was just one day- Dec 18th. I was the director that did this project with the kids because the straight acting kids did have a project this semester so I volunteered to do the show. CRAZY! ---Elena Garcia
