Event Description

Relative Theatrics presents a revival of THE SANTALAND DIARIES by David Sedaris, adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello December 5-8, 2018. The production is directed by Anne Mason and features local actor Ryan Archibald. THE SANTALAND DIARIES is back by popular demand and is sponsored by The Curiosity Shoppe and Sweet Pickles Children’s Store. It is the holiday special in Relative Theatrics’ sixth season, Familiar Creations, supported in part by the Wyoming Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. There are only 50 tickets per show and we sold out last year so get your tickets early!

Nationally acclaimed humorist David Sedaris’ story based on his own experiences, THE SANTALAND DIARIES tells the tale of an out-of-work actor who finds a holiday job as an elf at Macy’s in New York City. “This delightfully tart tale takes a wry look at how the holiday season brings out the best – and the worst – in us all.” (American Shakespeare Center) "A sardonic, merrily subversive tale—just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed. Worth more than a photo album full of Santas!" (NY Newsday) "A delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy's. Priceless observations, both outrageous and subtle. Destined to hold a place in the annals of American humor writing." (NY Times). The play contains adult themes and language. Audience members are invited to stay after the show to snap their picture with Crumpet the Elf in SantaLand.

THE SANTALAND DIARIES will be on the stage at the Laramie Plains Civic Center (LPCC) Gryphon Theatre Wednesday, December 5th through Saturday, December 8th at 7:30pm.

Tickets: Tickets are $12 in advance or $16 the day of the performance (subject to availability). Student and Senior tickets are $10 in advance or $14 the day of the show, with ID. Tickets can be purchased online at www.gryphontheatre.org or at the LPCC office Room 110 during its business hours Monday through Friday 9am to 4pm. Admission is limited to 50 seats per show. Additionally, tickets may be purchased in person at Coal Creek TAP. Patrons with proof of advance ticket sales can receive a pizza and two beers at Coal Creek TAP for $20.
