"The Santaland Diaries" is the hit solo show based on a short story by humorist David Sedaris. It's the outrageously funny tale of Sedaris' stint as an embittered elf at Macy's in New York City. At first, the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's Workshop, Crumpet the Elf becomes battle-weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on children and parents alike. Sedaris is the best-selling author of "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," "Me Talk Pretty One Day", "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" and his latest, "Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls". Wendy Knox directs Portland favorite Darius Pierce in his return as Crumpet.

Second City alums and veteran Comedy Central writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort have dreamed up this new take on "A Christmas Carol" that's infused with improv sketches and wacky characters. A complete sendup of the holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens" finds Scrooge, Tiny Tim and those know-it-all ghosts hopelessly mixed up in zany holiday sketches with anachronistic characters, uproarious improv and an ever-changing stable of drop-in local celebrity guests. Ron West directs the show, which contains mature content.
