The highly anticipated TheatreWorks Silicon Valley touring production of The SantaLand Diaries has finally arrived at Foothills Lohman Theater, directed by Jeffrey Lo (as his TheatreWorks debut) and starring Max Tachis as David/Crumpet the elf. Performances begin today, December 6th, 2017 at 8:00pm. TheatreWorks Silicon Valley is one of the nations premiere regional theatre companies, having starred in such groundbreaking productions as Memphis — which won four Tonys at the 64th annual Tony Awards in 2010.

Written by David Sedaris, adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello (director of The Odd Couple, which was previously interpreted on the Lohman stage, and more) The SantaLand Diaries tells the story of a young slacker who takes a job as a yuletide elf at Macy’s. On their website, TheatreWorks summarizes it as a “rollicking one-man cure for an overdose of holiday hype” that is sure to “have you ho-ho-hoing till the red-nosed reindeer comes home!”

Sedaris, a nationally recognized author, regularly appears in publications such as The New Yorker, where his work has twice been featured in their recurring series “The Best American Essays.” Sedaris’ books have over 10 million copies in print, and have been translated into 25+ languages. Originally penned as an essay, SantaLand is one of the most requested stories on NPR, and has since been dubbed a “holiday tradition.”

Newsweek describes the holiday comedy as “A sardonic, merrily subversive tale worth more than a photo album full of Santas!” Performances run this week on 12/6 at 8:00, 12/7 at 8:00, 12/9 at 4:00 and 8:00, and 12/10 at 4:00. For additional ticket information, other showtimes, and purchasing options visit theatreworks.org. Grab your friends and head to the Lohman Theater this week to get a holiday boost! Students who present their IDs can purchase tickets for $20, the general admission price is $45. This show is for mature audiences only.
