A custom that commemorates Joseph and Marys search for lodgings, the Mexican tradition of Posada brings together entire neighborhoods to celebrate the Christmas season. In this musical, playwright Octavio Solis crafts a story around a young girl named Gracie and the amazing adventure she encounters while joining her own neighborhoods Posada on Christmas Eve. Spoken in English (with a couple Spanish phrases thrown in to keep it real), this show sparks with Latin flair thanks to composer Marcos Loyas festive musical score. Appropriate for the whole family, this play reminds us of the true meaning of the holidaywhich has nothing to do with Santa Claus.
