THE SANTALAND DIARIES at Theater Wit

THE SANTALAND DIARIES

Theater Wit’s holiday classic returns for its ninth straight season, once again starring Mitchell Fain who plays to rave reviews and sold-out houses every year. Don't miss this antidote to Christmas cheer.

A celebration of the desperation of unemployment, the insanity of Christmas shopping, and the ineffable "cheer" of the holiday spirit. David Sedaris’ beloved account of his time in the trenches as an Elf at Macy’s during the holiday season has been called the “24 funniest pages ever written in the English language.”

Running time: 1 hour 15 minutes.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
