Hear Outrageous Stories from Mall Santas at the Santaland Diaries, Performed Live at ZACH Theatre

Founded in 1932 as Austin Civic Theatre, ZACH Theatre is the longest continuously running theatre company in the state of Texas, and one of the ten oldest in the country. Now, join the ZACH Theatre for The Santaland Diaries, performed this Friday, November 29th!

David Sedaris’ ever-irreverent and cynical Crumpet returns just in time for the holidays! The outlandish tale of a Macy’s elf merrily jingles to life in this holiday cult-classic. Crumpet sarcastically expounds on the talent it takes to juggle tinsel, tearful tots, and not-so-sober Santas at the most wonderful time of the year. With 75 minutes of rollicking (and not so politically-correct) fun, this laugh-‘til-you-spill-your-cocktail evening will delight adult elves who like it more naughty than nice!

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

Each year, ZACH Theatre serves nearly 115,000 Central Texans – 50,000 of which are children and youth who participate in education and outreach programs, as well as exciting camps and classes. ZACH productions span a dynamic range of programming that includes both professional Mainstage plays and musicals, and Theatre for Families. ZACH incubates original work, cultivating, commissioning, developing and producing new plays and musicals by playwrights and composers from Central Texas as well as internationally-acclaimed artists.

Don’t miss out on David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries at ZACH Theatre! Tickets are on sale for $40-$48 at www.zachtheatre.org and ZACH Theatre Box Office. For more information, please call (512) 476-0541.
