The Circuit Playhouse

***Adult Language Advisory***


The elf is back by popular demand! Crumpet, Macy's grumpiest elf, and his fellow elves will again be taking over the Memphian Room at The Circuit Playhouse. Share drinks with friends as Crumpet recounts his training and his hilarious encounters with surly parents and their greedy children! With a healthy dose of sarcasm and snark, Crumpet manages to reveal the shortcomings of the hustle and bustle surrounding the holidays, while gently reminding us of the true meaning of the season. This intimate, cabaret-style performance is a night at the theatre like no other!


The Santaland Diaries is directed by Dave Landis. Resident Company Member David P. Foster reprises the role of "Crumpet".
