The annual holiday tale, “La Pastorella” is set to begin its run in just a couple of weeks at the Lyceum Theater in Horton Plaza.
“La Pastorela de Creencia” is a contemporary twist on the traditional story of the shepherds’ journey to Bethlehem to witness the first Christmas. Called to action by Archangels Michael and Gabriel, the shepherds face temptation and danger from evil Lucifer and his nasty minions.

The critically acclaimed play is written by Southwestern College professor Max Branscomb.
