La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts is thrilled to present a holiday tradition for the whole family, Fiesta Navideñas: A Mexican Holiday Spectacular featuring the Ballet Folklórico Costa De Oro with Mariachi Mexicanísimo on December 21, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Fiesta Navideñas features 30 folklorico dancers and 10 mariachis in a ‘south-of-the-border' celebration laden with seasonal accents, including a traditional Christmas processional (posada), Mexican holiday songs (villancicos), a visit from the Three Wise Men, a festive piñata scene, and a vibrant holiday finale performed in the spirit of a true mariachi fiesta.

Besides gorgeous backdrops featuring a Mexican plaza, the ruins of Tulum, and a collage of traditional Christmas fanfare, the company's production also showcases large paper maché characters, typical of the state of Veracruz, whose carnival-styled dancing ads sparkle to what is already a vibrant holiday tour through Mexico's rich cultural heritage.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro is considered a rising star in the northern California folklorico scene as well as in other areas of the country.

Formed in 2006 as an offshoot of another Bay Area folklorico troupe, Costa de Oro’s principal artists have been dancing together for many years, some since their early teens. Several lead dancers have performed with the world famous Ballet Folklórico de México of Amalia Hernandez while other company members have trained in Mexico as well. The Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro is known for its creative choreography and its comprehensive performance repertoire.

Besides their performing and touring company, Costa de Oro has a training academy in folklorico dance and regularly engages in outreach programs to schools and community agencies. The troupe has also performed "Pre-Game" and "Halftime Shows" for the Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants.

Fiesta Navideñas performs 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, December 21. Tickets are $15 - $50. Call 562-944-9801 or 714-994-6310 or visit www.lamiradatheatre.com.

La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts is located at 14900 La Mirada Blvd. in La Mirada. Parking is free.
