The Austin Latino Theater Alliance presents “La Pastorela,” a holiday comedy for the whole family, at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, November 30 through December 15, 2012. The play is performed in Spanish with English surtitles and will run for two hours including a 15 minute intermission.
“La Pastorela” is a uniquely Austin holiday tradition that has been entertaining audiences for 14 years. It is a traditional Yuletide play performed in Native American/Latino communities since the late 16th century when Spanish missionary priests first introduced the act to Native Aztec Indians. The original script and music, passed on from generation to generation, recount the shepherd’s journey to Bethlehem as they encounter manifestations of evil that attempt to keep them from reaching their destination. Each year’s production retains elements of the original tradition, but adds a lively bilingual contemporary theatrical twist to the overall performance of the dialogue, music, and dance.
