As has been the custom every holiday season for the last 14 years, the Austin Latino Theater Alliance (ALTA) presents its production of the traditional pastorela in the auditorium of the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC). This year, in response to the success and positive feedback to the 2011 show; Miguel Angel Santana returns to write an original and humorous script, this time in the form of a Latin soap opera satire. Santana’s pen modernizes classic characters from the yuletide play -- from shepherds, demons, angels to pilgrims -- and brings them to life as the Shepard family (familia Pastor). They will go through a series of entertaining entanglements and funny situations, and will have to put aside their passions and weaknesses to undertake a special mission. The play is performed in Spanish with English surtitles and will run for two hours with a 15 minute intermission.
