From Los Angeles, California and the fabulous Cathedral on the hill, the annual Guadalupana festival is sponsored by the food giant Goya. This year marks the 16th rebirth of the Tepeyac spectacle, written by Evelina Fernandez, mounted by Jose Luis Valenzuela with and a cast drawn from the community and the actor collective of the Latino Theater Company, resident at Los Angeles Theater Center (link).

Produced by the Latino Theater Company in association with the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

The LATC writes:​
A gift of love, hope and faith to the City of the Angels. La Virgen de Guadalupe, Dios Inantzin is the story of an indigenous peasant’s vision of the Virgin Mary that has become a theatrical cornerstone at Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral for over a decade. This beautiful pageant play, with music, dance and a universal message of faith, love and perseverance, appeals to many people, regardless of race, language or religion. Join the tens of thousands who have become transfixed by the story of Juan Diego, a peasant from Tepeyac.
