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

Quotes & Highlights
- This play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award.
Playwright Matthew Spangler is the author of the critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of the blockbuster novel The Kite Runner. Now Spangler has fashioned a rip-roaring tale that screams out, “We are all in this together!” Part satire and part parable, Tortilla Curtain is humorous and heart breaking, a story that speaks passionately to the future of California and the challenges of forming “a more perfect union” in our changing America.
