A Christmas Story

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out." All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. Make this story part of your holiday traditions!

See A Christmas Story from December 6-22, 2013 at the Crighton Theatre!

Santaland Diaries and Season's Greetings

An alternative way to keep things jolly this holiday season! From award-winning humorist, playwright and National Public Radio contributor David Sedaris, comes a pair of comic monologues bursting with unconventional humor.

A young man arrives in New York with dreams of being a writer for television and instead lands a part-time job as a Macy's Christmas elf. From humiliating interview to elf indoctrination to scrapes with miscast Santas and obnoxious customers, all are the author's real-life experiences as detailed in the Santaland Diaries.

In Season's Greetings, a determinedly sunny Mrs. Jocelyn Dunbar takes pen to paper recounting the joys, the jobs, and the unexpected surprises of the past year. Twisted, tragic, and hilarious in its revelations, Season's Greetings is an antidote to the chipper holiday newsletter of yore.

See these monologues from November 22 to December 14, 2013 at the Island ETC in Galveston. Recommended for mature elves only.
