Children from ages 6-15 may register for a fee of $50 for the week long workshop. Alex Garza, former CBC drama instructor, will be the guest teacher and the workshop will be held in the auditorium at Coastal Bend College.
On Monday evening, July 27, Alex Garza will be presented in a solo performance beginning at 7 p.m. in the CBC Gertrude R. Jones Fine Arts Auditorium.
The performance will be free and open to the public. Garza will perform “The Ballad of El Gordito,” an original play written by the performer.
It’s a story for everyone about learning to just be yourself.
Alex has been writing and performing plays for several years. He graduated from Texas A&M-Kingsville in 1994 and then received his master’s degree in theater from Eastern Michigan University.
In his seven years as the drama instructor at Coastal Bend College, he directed more than 30 theater productions.
In 2003, he moved to Austin, where he worked with several theater companies and toured elementary schools as a professional actor, performing a variety of shows.
He is also a playwright whose works have been performed throughout the Texas area. He has written and performed several of his own one-man plays, including “Coconut” and “Abuelita’s Christmas Carol.”
