(Sacramento, CA) A group of young deportees are left somewhere south of the US/Mexican border with Christmas just a few days away. As in the traditional Pastorela, where shepherds are sent on a quest by a Christmas Angel, our modern day shepherds meet an old, homeless woman who pleads with them to help her family in Sacramento. There, a young undocumented couple, Maria and Jose, are about to be deported. Maria is expecting their first born son, Jesus, who faces being placed in Child Protective Services. Our young deportees are imbued with Dreamer hopes and agree to go to Sacramento and save Maria, Jose, and Jesus.
Will our young heroes, now advocates for immigration reform, save the young family from deportation? Or will the wily Diablos, stop them with their many forms of temptation? Will good win over evil? Come and find out on December 15th and join the fun! Audience participation - booing and hissing the diablos and cheering the angels - is highly encouraged!
The holiday treat continues at the Crest Theater immediately after the performance with Calidanza Dance Company in performance with a special Christmas Ballet Folklorico. Presentation at 3pm. Doors open at 2PM.
