      The Santaland Diaries

      The Black Mountain Center for the Arts Theatre proudly presents...The Santaland Diaries, written by David Sedaris and adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello.

      PLOT SUMMARY: When a down-on-his luck wannabe actor arrives in New York City at the end of the year, the only employment he can find is at Macy’s department store -- working in Santaland for the holiday season, as a reluctant, but relentlessly cheerful, elf. Newly christened “Crumpet”, our clever anti-hero shares his observations of the mayhem in front of and behind the scenes during one chaotic December, from aggressive parents and drunken Santas, to flirtatious actors, poor hygiene, and the racially charged hazards of being a “Pointer Elf.” Will Crumpet find a moment of pure Christmas spirit? Will he end up in Santa’s cottage with Snowball the elf? Will he escape with his life on Christmas Eve before being torn apart by enraged customers?

      This show contains mature content and is for adults only.

      Evening performances on Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and matinees on Sundays at 2:00 pm.

      *All Sunday matinees will include a post-show talkback/Q&A with actors, artists involved with production, and/or director*
