Teatro Vivo presents the return of the heart-warming bilingual comedy, Petra’s Pecado written and directed by local Austin playwright Rupert Reyes. This year’s production, Petra’s Pecado con música, is an all-new updated musical version of Austin’s favorite bilingual comedy.

It will take nothing short of a miracle to help Petra and her senior citizen friends in the small town of Las Flores, TX. to present the annual play about the Virgen de Guadalupe at the local church. Why did the new priest want her to direct the play as penance for her sin? Was Petra’s sin that big? No one knows, not even her husband. What they do know is that Tina Tamayo, Petra’s tortilla business rival, is out for revenge and will do anything to stop the senior citizens in their tracks. Will Tina succeed or will Petra and her friends overcome their fears and save a lot more than the play?

This two act bilingual comedy remains the most well known play in Hispanic community. It has played to sold out houses in all previous productions. The overwhelming response to this production by a wide variety of Austin audiences and the press prompted this return engagement that has been updated to include music and dance numbers.
