Zilker Botanical Garden and Teatro de la Tierra present Beto, Beto el Abeto, a play that blends languages, cultures, genres, and biological kingdoms in an inventive, unorthodox approach to Christmas amidst a world that is changing rapidly.

The play is a playful adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Fir Tree, tinted with memories of Nochebuena – Christmas Eve in Spanish-speaking, Latin American countries– and just the right amount of science.

The production runs for around 70 minutes with no intermission, and it is performed in English and in Spanish, alternating languages between performances. Beto is well suited for audiences 11 and up (or younger audiences who are okay sitting down for that uninterrupted amount of time).
