The Santaland Diaries @ Springfield Contemporary Theatre's Center Stage. By David Sedaris, Adapted by Joe Mantello
Directed by Richard Dines
Music Directed by Alex Huff
Starring Nathan Shelton* with Carolyn Billingsley, Michaela Karr and Haley Rolland
You won’t want to miss this encore run of the hilariously irreverent holiday show. It’s David Sedaris’ side-splitting send-up of Christmas and his brief, misguided career as a Macy’s elf. Besieged by bratty kids with overzealous parents and donning a humiliating costume, he finds that his cynical self and his elfin alter ego, “Crumpet,” are not exactly compatible. The Santaland Diaries skewers everything we love (and secretly loathe) about the holidays. See what it’s like for the subversive to work at Santaland, where the only thing more plentiful than good cheer is a good case of the giggles. This production contains mature language.
