People of Color Christmas


Boss babes, grab your free tickets to see People of Color Christmas, an original, comedic, contemporary Austin Holiday play written by award-winning Vietnamese American playwright Christine Hoang, Color Arc Productions. Set at an annual white elephant gift exchange party, POC Christmas is a comedy that universal audiences will find fun, hilarious, and engaging. “To create this play, we asked ourselves: ‘What stories do you want to tell that you have not yet heard or seen told on stage? What did Christmas mean to you as a kid, and what does it mean to you now as an adult?’” Hoang says. “The outcome of this internal exploration is a play that explores issues of family, race, class, gender, love, and relationships in a heartfelt and hilarious way.” POC Christmas is the first show to tour the Museums and Cultural Programs Facilities, rotating between the Asian American Resource Center (AARC), Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC), and the Dougherty Arts Center (DAC), respectively. Over the first three weekends in December (see specific dates below), the production will relocate its holiday set to each of these three sister sites and perform for diverse audiences throughout Austin. POC Christmas is a project produced by Color Arc Productions and is presented by the Museums and Cultural Programs Division of the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department. This project is supported in part by Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department. FREE TICKETS:
