About The Event
THE STORY: THE SANTALAND DIARIES is a brilliant evocation of what a slacker's Christmas must feel like. Out of work, our slacker decides to become a Macy's elf during the holiday crunch. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle-weary and bitter. Finding consolation in the fact that some of the other elves were television extras on One Life to Live, he grins and bears it, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike. The piece ends with yet another Santa being ushered into the workshop, but this one is different from the lecherous or drunken ones with whom he has had to work. This Santa actually seems to care about and love the children who come to see him, startling our hero into an uncharacteristic moment of goodwill, just before his employment runs out.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A SHOW FOR ADULTS!
PRODUCTION NOTES: The play is presented by The Ensemble Company at Penguin Point Productions in the Oviedo Mall, directed by Tyler Adcock and produced by James Brendlinger and Matthew MacDermid.
TICKETS: Tickets are $20, seniors $18, and students with valid ID $16. If you have a group of 10 or more people who would like to see the show, call James at 407-310-8908 to make reservations and receive discounted group tickets.
PARKING NOTE: When you arrive at the mall, watch for school buses in the parking lot. Park near the school buses and enter the mall under the blue canopy-covered walkway. Penguin Point will be the second store to your right when you enter this way. Be aware that some of the other mall exits are locked after 9pm, so if you’re coming to an evening show at Penguin Point it’s wise to park by this entrance.
