Overview

A David Sederis Christmas Classic for adults only!  The Santaland Diaries is a brilliant evocation of what a slacker’s Christmas must feel like. Out of work, our slacker decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter. An alternative holiday celebration, this outrageously funny, twisted and irreverent one-man play from popular humorist David Sedaris is a take on how the holiday season brings out the best – and the worst – in us all. A beer and wine cash bar will be availaable before the show. 

Adding some extra holiday cheer to the performance is “Busty the Elf” (Audra Blake Turner), who will sing some holiday favorites accompanied on the piano by Chris Beal. Both Audra and Chris are regular performers in the MHT Mystery Theatre Troupe.
