The Santaland Diaries
December 6th @ 7:30 pm
Think you're stressed out during the holidays? Try being one of Santa's helpers.
Turns out being surrounded by children, tinsel and merriment isn't all it's cracked up to be. Humorist David Sedaris wrote about the downside of holiday joy in a collection of fanciful stories based on his experiences called the Santaland Diaries. Performed as a hilarious one-man show, by Visiting Guest Artist David Cotter, this play tells the story of a somewhat-flawed Macy's department store elf named Crumpet as he tries to survive the Christmas season. (Rated PG-13)

Belle of Amhurst
February 16th @ 7:30 pm in Gundlach Theatre
The one woman show, made famous by legendary actress Julie Harris, tells the life story of famous poet Emily Dickinson. The audience is invited into the world of Emily Dickinson, with all of its secrets, eccentricities and passions. In her own words, Emily says “Every town must have its local character – and that’s what I am!”
Met with surprises at every turn, she puts pen to paper and overcomes daunting challenges. At times, she is compelled to “stop the world” as creativity starts – and her poems come to life in the unique voice that defied the conventions of her time. It’s a deliriously private world – and Emily Dickinson is our host!
