Nuestra Pastorela
by Teatro Vivo

Oct. 11 - Oct. 12 (2016)

La Pastorela is a traditional holiday play that has been performed in the Americas for centuries and has been passed down from generation to generation. La Pastorela shares wisdom through drama and humor, as shepherds embark on a journey, encountering manifestations of evil that attempt to keep them from reaching their destination. This Teatro Vivo production retains elements of the original tradition, with a contemporary twist to the dialogue and music. This celebration is a cultural event for the entire family.

La tradición de La Pastorela se ha realizado en las Américas por siglos y se ha pasado entre generaciones. La Pastorela comparte la sabiduría a través del  humor y el drama, siguiendo pastores que embarcan en un viaje, encontrando manifestaciones del mal que intentan evitar que lleguen a su destino. Esta producción de Teatro Vivo conserva elementos de la tradición original, con un toque contemporáneo al diálogo y la música. Esta celebración es un evento cultural para toda la familia.
