Holiday in Lights Parade

Fa la la la Lah, la la la lah 

The Watsonville Community Band will hold it annual Winter Concert at the Veterans Memorial Building on the corner of San Benito and Seventh Streets. This free concert will start at 7:00 p.m.  

The band is made up of musicians, of all ages, from San Benito, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Santa Clara counties. Tomorrow night the band will perform songs from The Polar Express. There will be a Christmas carol singalong. (I love that part.) For more details, visit this Facebook page.

Play On!

A theater group is rehearsing its play. But, the play's author keeps changing the script. Oh, dear....Oh, rats! It's getting crazy. It's gotten out of hand. Will the show go on? 

That's the premise of the comedy Play On! performed by the San Benito Stage Company, which will run until December 12. The play is at the Granada Theater, 336 Fifth Street, in Downtown Hollister at 7:00 p.m. For more details, go to the San Benito State Company website

La Pastorela

Upon receiving a message from the Angel of the Lord about the birth of the Holy Child, several poor shepherds make their way to visit him. It is not an easy journey to Bethlehem as the followers of Luzbel (Lucifer) block their way at nearly every turn. 

This the basis of the play La Pastorela, the traditional Mexican tale that Luiz Valdez adapted for El Teatro Campesino.  Performed in Spanish, the local acting troupe tells the story through words, song, and dance. La Pastorela runs every weekend until December 20 at the Old Mission San Juan Bautista.  Tomorrow night, the play will start at 8 p.m. 

You can learn about the other performance dates and times, as well as purchase tickets at this Brown Paper Ticket link. Be aware that you must pick up tickets at the El Teatro Campesino box office at 300 Third Street in San Juan Bautisa.
