7:00 PM Nativity: A Dramatic Musical Celebration Nativity: A Dramatic Musical Celebration is a soul-stirring gospel cantata directed by Terrance Bowens, that uses narration, dance, spirituals, and gospel music to re-tell the story of Christmas. Louise Pearson, renowned music professor and choir director, is the musical director of "Nativity." This piece is part re-enactment of the birth of Jesus, part church service, and part Christmas concert, composed entirely of gospel versions of traditional carols mixed with a few original tunes as well. Bowen's conceptualized version is a testament to the power of gospel music and the story of the Nativity told through the combination of scripture, poetry, dance, and songs that connect today to the time of mangers and swaddling cloths. Each joyous performance brings the real meaning of faith and love to life for the entire family

7:30 PM Theater: Les Veuves Créoles, Martinique Comedy Le Théâtre Francais de San Diego State University presents the United States premiere of the 18th century Martinique comedy, Les Veuves Créoles.

Presented entirely in French, with a synopsis and literary introduction translated into English.

Les Veuves Créoleswas, as far as we know, the first published literary work to have been composed in Martinique, then a French colony. This three-act prose comedy was published anonymously in 1768 and, according to its foreword, had circulated in manuscript form in Martinique the previous year, where it met with a mixture of criticism and praise. The publication details are given as 'A Amsterdam, & se trouve à Paris chez Merlin Libraire'.
