The Santaland Diaries

By David Sedaris; Adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello; Directed by Josh Batenhorst
December 13-17, 2017

Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30 pm; Sunday at 2:30 pm Additional late night performances Friday & Saturday at 9:30 pm

When an out of work slacker takes a job as an elf in Macy’s Santaland, his hilarious observations of the shoppers and employees are much more naughty than nice. This one-man-act can only be described one way: crazy funny. It’s the 16th year in a row for this show at ACT - and Tom Chalmers is shimmying into the candy cane tights again!
