The Santaland Diaries
By David Sedaris
Directed Dona Henry (Wheeler) and Kelly Hite (Valparaiso)
CAST: Crumpet: Jim Henry (Valparaiso)

Santaland is a raucously hilarious adult Christmas story! Out of work, a slacker decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. At first, the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop, he becomes battle-weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike. Crumpet the elf has had enough of department stores and the holiday season, and can’t wait to get it all off his chest!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
By Barbara Robinson
Directed Dona Henry (Wheeler) and Kelly Hite (Valparaiso)

Love Christmas: Love chaos? Love a cast of over 40 actors from ages 5 to 76?! The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is the perfect mix of hectic hilarity. In this comical Christmas classic, Grace and Bob Bradley take on the church Christmas pageant. The Bradleys are suddenly faced with casting the Herdman kids, probably the most inventively awful kids in history. The Herdmans add their own flair to the Christmas story and Grace has her hands full thinking that the Herdmans will certainly ruin the pageant You won’t believe the mayhem and the fun when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!
