Join us for TuYo’s end of the year holiday show that will close our first season!

Every year for nearly three decades, the Mercado Nochebuena has put on a traditional pastorela. But times are changing. The Mercado Nochebuena is struggling to keep tradition alive while competing with a brave new world where groceries are bought online and communities are forged through social media. The future is not looking good for the store. In what appears to be a Christmas miracle, for the first time ever, the Mercado Nochebuena Pastorela will be broadcast as a live musical event for a major network. Complete with an epic battle between Good and Evil and featuring a blend of musical numbers to include classic mariachi songs, traditional Christmas carols, and punk rock music, this is a modernized re-telling of the classic holiday pastorela.
