    Seaside Repertory Theatre presents

    [​IMG]

    sponsored by Alys Beach

    The Rep is thrilled to announce the limited run of the holiday cult classic by David Sedaris, The Santaland Diaries. Adapted for the stage by Joe Montello, the one-man comedy will run Wednesdays - Saturdays, December 13 - 23 at 7:30pm in the Meeting Hall Theatre, 215 Quincy Circle, in Seaside.

    Based on Sedaris' own personal experiences, this subversive holiday riff follows the tribulations of "Crumpet," played by Rep veteran Justin Lamb, as he tells of his surreal job as an elf at Macy's in Manhattan.

    The Santaland Diaries contains mature themes and is not suitable for children. Tickets are $24 and $20 for members.

    The Rep's 2006 Season is sponsored by Design and Design Services of Florida.

    This play is hysterically funny! We saw it in Denver.
    It definitely is not for little children, but is well worth seeing.
    Cil says check it out. And I bet 30-Gay would approve.

    David Sedaris is absolutely hilarious! And this holiday story is irreverent and eccentric, both hallmarks of Sedaris. He writes frequently for The New Yorker Magazine and has written several very funny books. He grew up in the South in a very quirky family. :floor:

    North Carolina, to be exact. I just finished Dress Your Family In Corduroy And Denim. We saw him at a reading in Denver before we left. He's even funnier in person, if that is possible. I just love the guy.
    Then there is his sister Amy (from Strangers With Candy). For Christmas, I am giving several friends her book:
    I Like You: Under the Influence. It's a pretty wacky book about hospitality, but actually has some good recipes and ideas.

    That's good. The Mer family (including kids :razz: ) have joined in, too, for the show on the 30th. Let's hope it's a full house that night!!!!

    They've added a last show on the 30th; see the thread by SeasideRep a few posts down. Smart thing, too, since there will be plenty of out-of-town guests in SoWal that week.

    I just got home from this play, and it was fantastic! Justin Lamb is certainly a talented young man, and he had the audience laughing the entire time. If you get a chance, treat yourself to a ticket to this show.

    Oh, man, you guys have to see this play, but leave the kids at home!!! The laughter probably extended my life by a couple of months. Justin was awesome. Last year, Craig Hoover did a one man show of a Christmas Carol, and this year's Christmas show was just as good, if not better. It is real-life kind of funny! Please support the Seaside Rep Theatre by coming out to see this great show. If you cannot attend, please contribute to the Rep. so that they can continue this wonderful cultural experience in SoWal.

    Another wonderful performance tonight :clap_1:, to an almost sold-out show. You guys must come see this play, but remember to leave the kids at home.
