A Friendswood teenager plays the coveted role of Fan, the beloved sister of Ebenezer Scrooge, in "A Christmas Carol - A Ghost Story of Christmas," at Houston's Alley Theatre, through Dec. 30.
Elena Vazquez is playing the part in her fifth season to appear in the annual production. Also in the show this year is her sister, Ava.
Elena Vazquez,  is 13 and an eighth-grader at Friendswood Junior High School. Elena paid her dues by playing Tiny Tim in her first "Christmas Carol" at the Alley. Then she donned an itchy wig to portray a schoolboy for three years. Last season, she portrayed Belinda, the second-oldest daughter in the Cratchit family in the classic holiday story by Charles Dickens.
