Three high schools came together to put on a musical here in San Antonio. It's called Cenicienta: A Quinceañera With a Taste of Cinderella. Composer Federico Chavez-Blanco says the production's origins are rooted in this part of our culture being overlooked.

"There's no musical place for Latino/Hispanic kids."

Popular culture just isn't geared toward them. But in Hispanic cultures, Chavez-Blanco says one cultural tradition stands tall.

The Playhouse production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol has an interesting twist:  it was re-written and adapted by San Antonians Tony Ciaravino and  Tim Hedgepeth. I interviewed him about the production and his role in breathing new life into it.

"The challenge was for both of us to go back to the original and try to honor Dickens as closely as we could. It's a much darker novel than I think a lot of people remember," Hedgepath said.
