A 50-minute Christmas show — a premiere of a new musical — is Saturday at the Melba Performing Arts Center in downtown Houston.

“The Christmas Skates” is sponsored by Community Betterment and Arts Council of Houston at 11 a.m. and again at 5 p.m.

With original songs from Nathanael McClure, the show is a family musical appropriate for all ages.

A little about the story: It’s nearly Christmas, and Tom Reynolds is excited to show off his brand new skates – that is, until someone shows up with a newer, better pair. Meanwhile, across town, Harvey McGinnis is thrilled with the meager gifts he’s managed to gather for his little sisters. Inspired by Harvey’s kindness and spirit, Tom hatches a plan to give his new friend a holiday surprise to remember.
