Written by Ballzer on December 12, 2019
Christmas after hours returns to the Weber Center with La Crosse Community Theater’s production of Santaland Diaries. David Sedaris wrote amazing stories about his time as a Macy’s Elf and they’ll come alive in this hilarious adult show! Matt Springer stars in this year’s production and he came to tell us all about it:
More about the show:
An out of work actor reluctantly decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. At first, the job is simply humiliating, but once visitors start pouring in, he becomes battle weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on children and parents alike. A Santa who actually cares about children arrives; can he help our elf embrace the spirit of Christmas before his employment runs out?
By David Sedaris. Adapted by Joe Mantello. Starring LCT actor, Matt Springer. For mature elves only.
