21st Annual A Tucson Pastorela


Written by Milta Ortiz and the Ghosts Writers

directed by Marc David Pinate

Leo Rich Theater (Tucson Convention Center)

Dec 14 – Dec 17, 2017  Thurs- Sat 7:30pm, Sat & Sun 2pm

“A Tucson holiday tradition for 21 years! Archangels send a group of shepherds on a harrowing journey to meet El baby Jesus. But first they must make it past ornery devils. A Tucson Pastorela is generously infused with musical numbers, and farcical satire lampooning 2017’s biggest political and pop cultural events.”

Carolyn’s note: This Tucson Tradition is back for the 21st year — seems like A Tucson Pastorela was on hiatus for a while (not sure why), and glad it’s back in Tucson on Dec. 14 to 17. Buy your tickets today to see more devils (fantasy vs. reality).
