Las Nuevas Tamaleras
The popular comedy, Las Nuevas Tamaleras ,written by playwright Alicia Mena, opens the 2018 season at Thiry Auditorium at Our Lady of the Lake University as an event partner of the city’s 300 Tricentennial Anniversary. 2018 also marks Las Nuevas Tamaleras’ 25th Anniversary in San Antonio! The charming ,Christmas play is considered as much a tradition as “The Nutcracker”, “A Christmas Carol, ” It’s a Wonderful Life” and the annual tamalada in San Antonio, with audiences anxiously awaiting its return year after year! For the past 25 years San Antonio audiences have reveled in seeing themselves and their own holiday traditions reflected on stage by the characters of Silvia, Josie and Patsy in their uproariously comical attempt at their first tamalada, while Doña Mercedes and Doña Juanita bicker about whose recipe makes the perfect tamal!
