The timeless battle between Lucifer's forces of evil and Michael the Archangel's champions of goodness is brought to thrilling life in the holiday musical La Pastorela del Cielo, San Diego's longest-running professional theater production. Now celebrating its 23rd season, this beloved Mexican-inspired holiday show is a contemporary twist on the traditional story of the shepherds' journey to Bethlehem to witness the first Christmas. An epic morality play full of ethical choices and introspection, it's presented with levity, music, beautiful costumes and dialogue written entirely in verse, much like a yuletide Dr. Seuss story. This bilingual show is performed primarily in English, with additional Christmas carols sung in Spanish. Learn More

This performance was a pleasant surprise! I expected a small community theatre venue with talented young actors and actresses suited for a local level of performance. What I got was a beautiful, comfortable venue, with professional stage and set. The young actors and actresses by far surpassed my expectations some of whom clearly had world class talent. I found myself forgetting the youth of the majority of these performers as I was treated to voices fit for Broadway! It was a lively performance with a wonderful plot line and catchy tunes. The whole family could enjoy this event, even if the young ones might not pick up on all the intricacies of the script, which was very well done.
Ms. Prophet turned in a stellar performance as Ti Moune, with a voice that fills the room and could do so at any venue.
This was my first experience with CYAC. I highly recommend this event and will be looking forward to the next CYAC performance.
This Tony Award-nominated musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime) is based on "The Little Mermaid" novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy. Presented as a “play within a play,” the story is told in song and dance by a cast of village storytellers who join together during a storm on a small island of the French Antilles. The tale they tell is one of struggle between races, classes and the will of the gods who rule their superstitious lives. Forbidden love, destiny and fate make this enchanting story a winner for all ages.
