Las Posadas is a novenario (nine days of religious observance) celebrated chiefly in Mexico and by Mexican-Americans in the United States, beginning December 16 and ending December 24. La Posada is a parade led by Mary and Joseph while La Posada Magica, on the other hand, is a musical play that follows this tradition and adds a fun, musical spin to the story.
Plays for kids can be painful for their parents and family members. However, this production is a guaranteed family destination that truly is fun for everyone. Performed in English with a Latin beat, this enchanting musical play for all ages is about a young girl who joins her neighborhood posada on Christmas Eve. Along the way, Gracie and her companions encounter colorful characters, including chocolate-gobbling sisters, graveyard spooks and a heartthrob rock singer. Finally, the journey through her community commemorates Joseph and Mary’s search for lodging and becomes for Gracie a time of discovery, renewal and reunion.
La Posada Magica was a holiday staple in Costa Mesa, California for 15 continuous years. Hispanic Arts Theatre itself has performed the production for San Diego audiences for three years. Once again La Posada Magica returns in 2017 for the holiday season and we’re overjoyed to bring plays for kids and the whole family back this year.

SCROOGE! – The Musical
Tamara Rodriguez Mehl – Choreographer
Based upon a retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel in a 1970 film about the bitter old miser taken on a journey of self-examination and redemption, courtesy of several mysterious Christmas apparitions, the story was adapted for the stage by the original writer in a charming musical production true to Dickens’ work set in Victorian London. The song score was nominated for an Academy Award, and the Broadway-style show ran in London for many seasons since opening in 1992, and it is presented this year in a new production for the stage musical’s 25th anniversary. It is wonderful to be producing this special show in the same year with a cast of over 35 talented actors, singers and dancers.

BEYOND THE BELL BROADWAY (BBB) is a musical theatre, after-school program specifically designed for 3rd to 8th grade students. Beyond the Bell Broadway creates a gateway into the world of the American Musical; one of the truest art forms that is especially unique to the United States, and integral to its mainstream culture. Children from economically disadvantaged communities are significantly underexposed to this aspect of American culture. With selections from classical Broadway musicals, the program specifically covers the components of acting, singing, and dancing.
The preparation of various musical numbers is the focus of the program, in addition to the vigorous training of the musical theatre skill set. The program provides a semester of classes consisting of basic dance technique, choreography, choral and solo singing, acting and theatre production. Using a six-hour per week, two-times weekly format, Beyond the Bell Broadway provides 84-hours of instruction at each participating school, with a total of 168-hours of instruction for the academic calendar. The first semester culminates with a school assembly during school hours, while the second semester progresses to a musical theatre performance at a community performing arts center. Beyond the Bell Broadway implements all five strands of the California (VAPA) visual and performing arts content standards.
Tamara was interviewed by Gerardo Gonzalez (El Huevo), at the LatinoMex Radio Studios in Los Angeles, CA, on October 6, 2017. Jim Francis and Victor Berlin were also in the broadcast studio. The interview was live-streamed on LatinoMex Radio’s Facebook Page.

Presented by Teatro Máscara Mágica, The Pitch sweeps into LA as Paul Rodriguez reprises his role at the center of this cautionary fable, this time with his former Odd Couple co-star Mike Gomez. Limited Engagement at the Los Angeles Theatre Center.
Step inside the world of television programming and learn why there aren’t quality Latino shows on the tube with this hilarious comedy drawn from the true-life experiences of comedian and actor Paul Rodriguez. When executives are more concerned with formulaic shows to sell advertising space than quality entertainment, you end up with stereotypical programming. Rodriguez cracks the nut open with The Pitch at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, an absurd look at commercial television and culture-blind studio heads.
