LA POSADA MAGICA December 15 at 7pm, 16 at 2pm & 7pm & 17 at 2pm & 7pm Director & Choreographer: Carlos Mendoza Produced by: Hispanic Arts Theatre Fun for the Whole Family – Piñata for Children During Intermission
Las Posadas is a novenario (nine days of religious observance) celebrated chiefly in Mexico and by Mexican-Americans in the United States, beginning December 16 and ending December 24. La Posada is a parade led by Mary and Joseph while La Posada Magica, on the other hand, is a musical play that follows this tradition and adds a fun, musical spin to the story. Plays for kids can be painful for their parents and family members. However, this production is a guaranteed family destination that truly is fun for everyone. Performed in English with a Latin beat, this enchanting musical play for all ages is about a young girl who joins her neighborhood posada on Christmas Eve. Along the way, Gracie and her companions encounter colorful characters, including chocolate-gobbling sisters, graveyard spooks and a heartthrob rock singer. Finally, the journey through her community commemorates Joseph and Mary’s search for lodging and becomes for Gracie a time of discovery, renewal and reunion. La Posada Magica was a holiday staple in Costa Mesa, California for 15 continuous years. Hispanic Arts Theatre itself has performed the production for San Diego audiences for three years. Once again La Posada Magica returns in 2017 for the holiday season and we’re overjoyed to bring plays for kids and the whole family back this year. Individual Tickets: $23.00 General Admission; $12.00 (Under 13) Group Rates (10+ guests) available
