Make a list and check it twice to see The Santaland Diaries Dec. 7-9 at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. Written by the great American humorist David Sedaris, the play follows one out-of-work actor who decides to become a Macy’s elf to pay the holiday bills. During his tour of duty as Crumpet the elf, he learns what it takes to juggle tots and tottering Santas during a painfully festive time of the year. It’s a “laugh until you cry” evening of merrily subversive entertainment to delight adult audiences. The show stars Jerry Johnson of Decatur.
