La Pastorela de Sacramento

Thursday, December 7, Guild Theater, $5-$15


It’s a new take on an old Christmas tradition: the Mexican custom of pastorelas, or plays that tell the Biblical story of the four shepherds’ journey to Bethlehem. This modern retelling is set in modern-day Sacramento, where the shepherds become a developer in Oak Park, a veteran, a homeless student and a former actress who all try to help a homeless family find shelter. The bilingual musical covers themes reflecting the challenging realities of today. Shows will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, 12/7 through Saturday, 12/9, and at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, 12/10. 2828 35th Street,
