Los Pastores

In a typical nativity play, we witness the birth of Jesus through the eyes of Mary and Joseph; but the Guadalupe Players are anything but typical. Los Pastores follows the shepherds’ journey and the obstacles set forth by the devil, culminating in a battle between Michael the Archangel and Lucifer. First brought to SA from Mexico in 1910, this folk play is sung in Spanish and celebrates its 67th year at Mission San José. Expect memorable costumes—cast member Debbie Covarrubia-Barcenez teases, “We do dress like Texas shepherds and not necessarily Bethlehem shepherds.” Free (lawn chairs welcome), 7pm Sat, Mission San José, 6701 San José, (210) 386-4177, —Murphi Cook
