‘Santaland Diaries’ Coming to Strand Theatre in Moundsville

MOUNDSVILLE — Join the Strand this Saturday and Sunday for the opening of their 2018-19 theatrical season with “The Santaland Diaries!”

Leave the little ones at home and come out for an evening of hilarious and raunchy reader’s theatre performed by Butch Maxwell and Sadie Crow. Written by beloved humorist David Sedaris (“Naked,” “Me Talk Pretty One Day”), “The Santaland Diaries” follows the adventures of Crumpet — a grown man living in New York City who takes a seasonal job working as an elf in Macy’s Santaland. Laugh along as Crumpet bemoans the helicopter parents, bratty children and curmudgeonly Santas that make “Santaland” feel more like “Satan-land.” And again — leave the kids at home for this one. Strong language and adult subject matter make this inappropriate for young elves. Wine will be available.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 7 p.m. both nights.
