A CHRISTMAS STORY opens on Saturday, AUDITIONS on Sunday, SANTALAND is coming to town and HOLIDAY GIFT CERTIFICATES are on sale now!

How can you resist such old-fashioned Christmas spirit! A CHRISTMAS STORY, humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the mid-west in the 1940s, follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. The 1983 film has become an annual tradition for thousands of families and now you can enjoy it live onstage right here at the Little Theatre!

The last auditions of 2014 will take place this Sunday at the Little Theatre. 4000 MILES is our fifth Ubu’s Other Show staged reading of the season, and the show will be directed by Danielle McNamara.

Crumpet the Elf will be returning to the Little Theatre stage on December 12th at 9:45 pm, as part of a special holiday edition of our After Hours @slotheatre late night comedy series. THE SANTALAND DIARIES is David Sedaris’ remarkable one-man-show chronicling the writer’s experiences working at Macy’s Santaland in New York. Kevin Harris will take on the role of Crumpet for the second year in a row, directed by Suzy Newman. Don’t miss a minute of late-night holiday hilarity in downtown SLO!
