The Santaland Diaries

Dec 6th — Dec 24th, 2014

Copaken Stage

Single tickets go on sale on Monday, Aug. 4!

Written by David Sedaris
Directed by Eric Rosen
 
America’s favorite irreverent elf Crumpet arrives in Kansas City! David Sedaris’ hysterical tale of elfin’ woe is a hilarious send-up of his brief, misguided career as a Macy’s elf. The show skewers our sentimental love of all things Christmas—the happy children, the gifts, the spritely elves and the good cheer.
 
The Santaland Diaries shows us the other side of what it’s like to work at Santaland, the result is merrily subversive, but always fun!
 
This performance, as a work of satire, contains material that might be objectionable to some audiences. Appropriate for ages 16 and up.

Complete with lively musical numbers, ornate costuming, and dashing stagecraft, Dickens' classic tale of hope and redemption continues to remind us what's really worth celebrating - at the holidays, or any time!
