During the holiday season every child is anxiously waiting for the arrival of Santa Clause as he brings gifts to all the good children in the world, but the people of Mexico, and many Mexican American families in the United States wait for the “Posada”.

 

A religious festival celebrating the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge for Mary to give birth.

Set in a Contemporary Salinas, the heart of La Posada beats with the tale of Gracie, a young girl whose Christmas joy has waned after losing her dear little brother the previous holiday season. This Christmas Eve, Gracie embarks on the poignant journey, to rekindle her belief in the power of community, while simultaneously reigniting the flicker of her own Christmas spirit. Crafted to live for the vibrant Alisal Community in Salinas, this rendition of this cherished Christmas production will be tailored to resonate with the unique essence of this special place we call home.

Admission is FREE. We accept donations for reserve seating.
