SANTALAND is coming to town, MISS WITHERSPOON takes the stage and A CHRISTMAS STORY packs the house!

BACK BY  POPULAR DEMAND!  Kevin Harris returns to the Little Theatre stage in the hilarious David Sedaris holiday story of Crumpet the Elf at Macy’s Santaland, complete with tights, jingle bell shoes and festive cap. This late night holiday show is more than a little irreverent, just a tad “salty” and if you missed it last year, be sure to get your tickets early to ensure your seats.

“A sardonic, merrily subversive tale—just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed. Worth more than a photo album full of Santas!” —NY Newsday

Grab a glass of wine at the bar and join  us for THE SANTALAND DIARIES opening this Friday, December 12th at 9:45 pm and running through December 21st immediately following A CHRISTMAS STORY on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at 9:45 pm and Sundays at 7 pm. Click HERE for your tickets today!

UBU’S OTHER SHOE will bring another award-winning show to the stage next Tuesday and Wednesday at 7 pm. Christopher Durang‘s black comedy MISS WITHERSPOON will be presented as a staged reading directed by Kelly Fidopiastis and featuring Jill Turnbow in the title role as the cantakerous, sardonic and stubborn Miss Witherspoon. Also featured in this very funny show are Valerie Palai, Katie Gucik, Irene Platt, Jonathan Shadrach and Priscilla McRoberts.

“This is Durang at the top of his metaphysical, apocalyptic, high-and-pop cultural game…thoroughly lovable. And funny.” —NY Newsday.

Our staged readings have become one of our hottest tickets here at the Little Theatre, so don’t wait until the last minute to book your seats. Tickets are only $10 and you can purchase them online right HERE. If you attend on Tuesday evening, be sure to join us for a talk-back with the actors and the director after the performance.

A CHRISTMAS STORY is breaking all records for ticket sales! But never fear, you can still get tickets to see this heartwarming holiday show. Good seats are still available ONLINE for a few shows and we will keep a waiting list at the box office beginning one hour before curtain at every show so that you can take advantage of last minute seats that become available. We’ll do our best to get you in to this delightful family show!

“Classics bloom quickly in modern times…you don’t have to have grown up with 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his ache for an air rifle under the tree to think of A Christmas Story as a Christmas must.”

A CHRISTMAS STORY runs through December 21st on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm. Have a Merry Christmas and remember…”Don’t shoot your eye out!”
