Stage: La Posada Magica
Stage: La Posada Magica"La Posada Magica"
Director & Choreographer: Carlos Mendoza
Produced by: Hispanic Arts Theatre
Fun for the Whole Family - Piñata for children during intermission.

Las posadas is a novenario (nine days of religious observance) celebrated chiefly in Mexico and by Mexican-Americans in the United States, beginning December 16 and ending December 24 of every year. La Posada is a parade led by Mary and Joseph while "La Posada Magica," on the other hand, is a musical play that follows this tradition and adds a fun, musical spin to the story.

This production is a guaranteed family destination that truly is fun for everyone. Performed in English with a Latin beat, this enchanting musical play for all ages is about a young girl who joins her neighborhood posada on Christmas Eve. Along the way, Gracie and her companions encounter colorful characters, including chocolate-gobbling sisters, graveyard spooks and a heartthrob rock singer. Finally, the journey through her community commemorates Joseph and Mary's search for lodging and becomes--for Gracie--a time of discovery, renewal and reunion.

"La Posada Magica" was a holiday staple in Costa Mesa, California for 15 continuous years. Hispanic Arts Theatre itself has performed the production for San Diego audiences for three years. Once again "La Posada Magica" returns in 2017 for the holiday season and we're overjoyed to bring plays for kids and the whole family back this year.
