December 8 – December 10, 2017

Lead by Rosa Apodaca and Fr. Richard McManus OFM

Our weekend will focus on El Teatro Campesino’s classic “La Pastorela”. We will travel to the Old Mission San Juan Bautista to experience our signature blend of community and professional performers that come together to make this performance a beloved holiday tradition. After a sign from the Angel of the Lord, the scruffy shepherds embark on their spiritual journey to visit the Holy Child, only to find themselves beset along the way by the demonic followers of Luzbel. “La Pastorela” vibrates with stirring action, vivid color, and robust humor-all set to glorious live music and dance-throughout the mission. Performed in Spanish for over thirty years, “La Pastorela” reaches all audiences with El Teatro Campesino’s broad visual acting style. Rosa Apodaca a veterana, of El Teatro Campesino, will be your hostess on this journey!
