Los Pastores

Dating back to the Spanish Colonial era, the “shepherds’ play” Los Pastores was originally developed by Franciscan friars as a means of teaching the nativity story to indigenous people. Presented by Mission San José Parish and underwritten through funds raised as part of the 2016 World Heritage Festival, this 69th annual presentation of the age-old holiday favorite plays out on the grounds of Mission San Jose and features the Guadalupe Players staging a script from the 1930s. Told from the shepherds’ point of view, the play depicts their journey to Bethlehem and the battles between good and evil, both internally and externally. Guests are encouraged to warm warm clothing and bring blankets and lawn chairs. Hot chocolate and pan dulce will be available for purchase from the parish. Free, 7-9pm Sat, Mission San Jose, 701 E. Pyron Ave., (210) 207-8612, sanantonio.gov. — BR
