Las Nuevas Tamaleras
The popular comedy, Las Nuevas Tamaleras ,written by playwright Alicia Mena, is back after having to cancel the 2020 Season due to COVID-19 concerns. This year they will hold performances at the Carver Community Cultural Center at 226 N. Hackberry, San Antonio, Texas 78202. ALL TICKETS $25 AND ARE GENERAL ADMISSION.
The charming Christmas play has entertained audiences in San Antonio for 26 years and is considered as much a tradition as, “The Nutcracker”, “A Christmas Carol, and ” It’s a Wonderful Life” with many families making it part of their annual holiday ritual with fans anxiously awaiting its return year after year!
For more than a quarter of a century, San Antonio audiences have enjoyed seeing themselves reflected on stage by the characters of Silvia, Josie and Patsy in their uproariously comical attempt at their first tamalada while the spirits of Doña Mercedes and Doña Juanita add to excitement and drama as they join the new tamaleras in an amusing power struggle about whose recipe makes the perfect tamal. Centered around friendship, family and comradery, the play makes you laugh, makes you cry and makes you proud.
Written as a tribute to her mother, playwright, Alicia Mena’s beloved script has truly stood the test of time and year after year leaves the audience filled with true holiday spirit.
