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.

Springfield Contemporary Theatre presents Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer-winning play "Driving Miss Daisy", through December 3 at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza.   Local favorite Julie Bloodworth plays Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in Atlanta in the late 1940s (a character based on Uhry’s grandmother).  Her son deems her too old to drive and hires 60-year-old Hoke Colburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur.
