Santaland Diaries


Are you looking for a different kind of Holiday Party this year?

Why not skip the awkward converstion around the same punch bowl, and treat everyone to an evening of laughs!
Enjoy a command performance of The Santaland Diaries.

Following sold out performances last year, Frank McClain is back again to perform the role of “Crumpet”, Santa’s least enthusiastic Christmas Elf. Featuring the dry wit of humorist David Sedaris, The Santaland Diaries tells the (mostly) true story of the author’s time as an elf in the Santaland at the New York City Macy’s. From training to Christmas Eve, Sedaris tells the story of the people you meet during the “most wonderful time of the year”.

The Santaland Diaries is recommended for ages 14+; contains mature content and language, and the secret of Santa is exposed.

Each Performance seats 100 people. For an additional fee, use of the gorgeous Grand Ball Room can be provided for a pre-show or post-show reception.

Show only: $600

Show and Ballroom: $1000

Show dates available December 20th, 2017- January 7th, 2018
