Horizon Theatre Company is in holiday cheer as it reprises its popular production of The Santaland Diaries by award-winning satirist David Sedaris. Adapted from David Sedaris' best-selling book Holidays on Ice, the play borrows from tales during his stint as a Macy's Department Store elf named Crumpet. This rebel without a Clause recounts in hilarious fashion the true-life story of an out-of-work writer as a Macy's Department Store elf.
