  2. The Santaland Diaries (Dec 15) 11 days. Nov-28th to Dec-15th

    By David Sedaris ~~ Recommended for mature audience due to language and subject matter ~~ This outrageous holiday comedy stars Crumpet, a rebel without a Claus, who recounts his true-life tale of being an out-of-work writer doing a stint as a Macy’s department store elf. His encounters, as an Elf during the season of forced joy, have become a delightful cult classic for those in need of a holly-jolly antidote! A delightfully absurd look at the commercial Christmas season, Sedaris’ sharp and hilarious observations have rapidly become one of the nation’s most popular holiday shows. Barter’s production will feature one of Barter’s favorite actors, Nick Piper, as Crumpet. In Repertory with Wooden Snowflakes~~ Director's Notes The Santaland Diaries , Directors note ~~ Like most actors, I have had my share of survival jobs. Those jobs you do to pay the rent while you’re auditioning to get your “real” job in the theatre. Waitress, word processing, landscaper, sales person, hostess, factory worker, Elf. Yes, I was an Elf in Santaland at Macy’s in New York City.~~ The first time I read David Sedaris’s The Santaland Diaries , I was amazed at how incredibly accurate it was painting the picture of life in Santaland. Of course, his version was far more cynical than my own recollections and memories. I enjoyed being an Elf. After all, it was the holidays and it was sort of like acting. Well, not really, but I could tell myself that to stay sane. I remember the magic window, the huge tree, the snowy maze, being a pointer elf, a photo elf, a cashier elf, all of it. And like David Sedaris, by the time Christmas finally got here I was done with Christmas. Aren't we all?~~ It's easy to do, what with the crowds and the tempers and stress and lack of money and time. With all the commercialization of Christmas and Santa, we tend to forget what it's all really supposed to be about. Which is.... hmmm.... wait, I'll think of it. Well, anyway, I must have enjoyed my experience in Santaland because I came back another year and dressed up as a Christmas tree with two other trees and sang Christmas carols around the store. We were called the Christmas Tree-O, get it? And I was a Flower in the Flower Petal Trio at Easter for the Flower Show. Gee, I probably have just as many stories as David.~~ Thank you for taking time out of your busy holiday schedule to join us and share some Christmas cheer. I hope you enjoy your time in Santaland with Nick (not to be confused with St. Nick) and Crumpet. May it give you a good laugh and stir up some wonderful memories of your own crazy holiday seasons. Happy holidays, and the very best to you and yours in the coming New Year!~~ Cheers,~~ Tricia Matthews – Director, The Santaland Diaries ~~ Cast & Credits CAST: Crumpet: Nicholas Piper ~~ Rehearsal Assistant Stage Manager: Victoria L.

    By Catherine Bush ~~ Trapped on Christmas Eve because her car slid off the icy Kentucky road, Eve Lawson, a cynic who refuses to believe in Santa Claus, finds herself in the home of Simon Peter Whitaker, a woodcarver and expert on Christmas, who is dressed as Santa. Believer and unbeliever find themselves clashing time and time again as old wounds struggle to be healed by the Love that is Christmas. Join us for an evening of humor, surprises and joy as written by one of Barter’s favorite authors.~~ In Repertory with The Santaland Diaries~~ Director's Notes CHRISTMAS MAGIC~~ This is the time of year when we look for flying reindeer, when we hook up twinkly lights against the darkening nights, when we focus our hearts towards the magical and the miraculous. But what do we mean when we talk about Christmas magic?~~ I was recently watching an interview with Derek DelGaudio, renowned magician, and, in it, he talks about what magic actually is to him. He shows a simple trick in which he puts a ball in his hand, closes it, lets you tap his hand, and then shows you that the ball has disappeared by opening his hand again. The way he sees it, the moment of magic is not the reveal of his empty hand, but rather, the moment just before he’s re-opened his hand—the moment you believe the ball has vanished.~~ I know what he means. I think we can all recognize that lift of our hearts when our belief has flapped its wings. “A thrill of hope” as the Christmas song says. It’s not just that something mysterious has happened outside of us; something has shifted inside us as well. We are a part of the mystery.~~ If magic- and indeed miracle, magic’s deep and truthful cousin- is so rooted in belief, what are we to do in a world as cynical as ours? What is it to believe in the face of real pain, real disappointment, real loss- in the face of day-in-and-day-out real life that feels so undecidedly un-magic?~~ That’s what Simon and Eve have to try to discover in this play. It’s what we all have to find out. We have to figure out how to open ourselves in the real world, in the painful, in the annoying, in the times we wish we could back away from other people who believe differently than we do, in the times when we think all is lost — in that millisecond before the magician’s hand opens, we have to seek to believe in each other and in things bigger than we are. Christmas comes to us at the very darkest moment of the year and whispers to us that something could be worth believing in, and against all our real world training and street smarts, we’ve got to lean into that. We’ve got to.~~ Katy Brown — Director, Wooden Snowflakes ~~ Cast & Credits CAST: Simon Whitaker: Andrew Hampton Livingston ~~ Eve Lawson: Kim Morgan Dean ~~ Voice–overs: Radio DJ and Jake: Rick McVey ~~ Rehearsal Assistant Stage Manager: Victoria L.
