Springfield Contemporary Theatre will present an encore run of David Sedaris’s hilariously irreverent holiday show The Santaland Diaries December 8 thru 17 at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza, corner of Robberson and Pershing. Sedaris’ side-splitting send-up of Christmas focuses on his brief, misguided career as a Santa's elf at Macy’s in New York. Besieged by bratty kids with overzealous parents and donning a humiliating costume, he finds that his cynical self and his elfin alter ego, “Crumpet,” are not exactly compatible.
