Cara Mia Theatre presents Nuestra Pastorela
Another Cara Mía favorite returns with Nuestra Pastorela and its family-friendly spin on a Mexican holiday tradition. Written by Dallas' own Jeffry Farrell and David Lozano, this unique and zany adaptation of the Mexican shepherd's tale features all the usual suspects.
You'll see the Angel Gabriel, the shepherds traveling to Bethlehem, and the bumbling devils, depicted in the playful style of the Mexican folk tradition, plotting the shepherds' doom by tempting them with the seven mortal sins. When the shepherds don the "smallest mask in the world" (the red clown nose), chaos ensues and hilarity abounds with broad physical comedy and slapstick. You won't want to miss this one-of-a-kind production for anyone who is a child at heart.
Performed in English with some Spanish. Suitable for all ages.
