The many faces of SANTALAND’s Crumpet the Elf and BEST OF NO SHAME adds another performance!

Tis the season to be jolly…or something like that. You know, just looking at these photos makes me giggle, so I can’t wait to see this show again this weekend. Kevin Harris will be taking the stage for the second year in a row in THE SANTALAND DIARIES, a hilarious look at the madness which is the Christmas season, especially when you’re playing an elf in New York’s Macy’s department store. The popular one man show was adapted by Joe Mantello from the David Sedaris story which details his real life experiences working as an elf in Macy’s Santaland in the late 1980’s. Sedaris first read the essay on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition in 1992 and it was his first major break as an author and as a radio personality. Our show is directed by Suzy Newman and you’re gonna love it!

You only have 7 chances to see this very funny and heartfelt one-man show, so get your tickets NOW to ensure your seats. Last year’s production sold-out every performance, so don’t delay!  The show is part of our AFTER HOURS @slotheatre late night comedy series and runs December 12-21, Fridays and Saturdays at 9:45 pm and Sundays at 7 pm. There will also be one Thursday night show, Dec. 18 at 9:45 pm. All shows immediately follow our mainstage production of A CHRISTMAS STORY. Click HERE for details and to get your tickets today!

If you’ve always wondered what this late-night, once a month, wild and crazy thing we call NO SHAME THEATRE is all about, NOW is your chance to find out! After four years and hundreds of fabulous, original 5 minute performances, we have put together an evening we’re calling THE BEST OF NO SHAME THEATRE, featuring performances of some of our favorite pieces from our monthly No Shame gatherings. On Friday, December 26 at 7 pm, you can experience the BEST of No Shame, without having to stay up past your bed time!  And because the demand for tickets has been so high, we’ve added a special Encore performance at 10:30 pm!

If  you’re a die-hard fan of No Shame and you already have tickets for the 7 pm show, but would rather switch to the traditional 10:30 pm time, we’ll be happy to exchange your tickets for you. Just call the box office at (805) 786-2440 and they’ll take care of it. Your exchange could make it possible for someone who can’t handle the late night time-frame to experience No Shame for the very first time. And isn’t that what the holidays are all about – giving unto others?

Wishing you warmth and a happy song to keep you dry on a rainy night in California. Hope you enjoy this clip celebrating that wonderful “California dew.” Speaking of which, you can get your tickets NOW to our version of the classic musical right HERE
