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 theatre 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

I went in spite of some of the negative reviews I read on here. I'm so glad I didn't listen! The set was simple and unimpressive, but it is a black-box theatre with no fly-space so most booked-in shows I see there are simple. That having been said, the show itself was amazing. The Hart twins have angelic voices and the rest of the cast was very powerful in their voices and acting. I really loved that there were a handful of young, student performers in the show as well. It's nice to see some companies taking an interest in youth since there are a lot of worse things kids can be doing with their time. The story is interesting but not mind-blowing, but the talent on stage is definitely worth the ticket price!
Harts Performance Inc. is owned by identical twins Shauna Hart Ostrom & Shelly Hart Breneman (well-known San Diego performers & Co-Directors of Actors Alliance) who starred as Daisy & Violet Hilton in the San Diego Premiere of Side Show in 2006.
