MIRACLES OF THE SEASON
Patio Playhouse (Escondido)
Through December 22
“Bubbe and the Mensch on a Quest” is the story about the Mensch (A yiddish word meaning a person of integrity and honor), who’s on a quest to find the lost Family Heritage Menorah. While on their quest to find the lost menorah, Bubbe tells the story of Chanukah and why it lasts 8 nights. This story is filled with lots of singing and laughter and in the end summarizes the Hanukkah tradition.
“Las Posadas” It’s time for the choir to go caroling but the choir director is sick and cannot lead them. A caroler volunteers to direct. They try out one of their songs to make sure their idea works. As they carol, they visit a family decorating their home for Christmas. The carolers and the family share the Christmas story together and experience a bit of the tradition of Las Posadas (A mexican religious festival which commemorates Joseph & Mary’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of safe refuge for Mary to give birth).
