The Santaland Diaries

Jefferson Performing Arts SocietyThe Santaland Diaries directed by  A.J. Allegra and starring Alex Wallace will run November 30 through December 23. When a down-on-his luck wannabe actor arrives in New York City at the end of the year, the only employment he can find is at Macy’s department store – working in Santaland for the holiday season, as a reluctant, but relentlessly cheerful elf. Newly christened “Crumpet”, our clever anti-hero shares his observations of the mayhem in front of and behind the scenes during one chaotic December, from aggressive parents and drunken Santas, to flirtatious actors, poor hygiene, and the racially charged hazards of being a “Pointer Elf”. Will Crumpet find a moment of pure Christmas Spirit? *For Mature Audiences* For tickets click here!

White Christmas

Jefferson Performing Arts Society Irving Berlin’s musical White Christmas will run from December 7 through 16. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas. An uplifting musical great for the Holiday Season!  For tickets click here!
