Diablos, Shepherds, & Payasadas

Teatro Vivo Presents Nuestra Pastorela

AUSTIN, Texas — Teatro Vivo is excited to present Nuestra Pastorela, a play that offers a unique twist on a favorite holiday tradition. This story promises to be a fun evening at the theatre for the entire family.

Written by Jeffry Farrell and David Lozano, and directed by Ricky Ramon, Nuestra Pastorela is a fun and wacky adaptation of the traditional shepherd’s tale. Accompanied by the musical stylings of Clemencia Zapata and performed in a playful mix of English, Spanish, and gibberish, Nuestra Pastorela follows the lively shepherds on their way to Bethlehem. Along the way, a group of bumbling devils try to interrupt their journey and plot the shepherds’ ultimate doom, bringing the ultimate showdown between good and evil front stage in a chaotic and hilarious compilation.

“People will walk away with a better understanding of the story we’ve all grown to love,” says Ramon. “They will leave the theatre feeling energized, happy, and ready to celebrate the holidays.”

Nuestra Pastorela es una divertida y absurda adaptación del cuento tradicional. Con el talento musical de Clemencia Zapata, y realizada en una mezcla de Inglés, Español, y sonserías, Nuestra Pastorela sigue un grupo de pastores animados en su camino a Belén. Por el viaje, unos diablos necios tratan de interrumpirlos,  intentando la desolación de los pastores. La lucha entre el bien y el mal toma el primer plano en una historia caótica y cómica. Con un toque diferente, Nuestra Pastorela promete ser una noche inolvidable para toda la familia.
