A Readers Theatre “Plus” Event,
November 29th, – December 8th
Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris adapted by Joe Mantello is described as a brilliant the telling of what a slacker’s Christmas must feel like. Out of work this slacker decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. At first the job is simply humiliating. Once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop he becomes battle weary and bitter taking consolation in the fact that some of the other elves were television extras on One Life To Live. So, he grins and bears it occasionally taking out his frustrations on some of the visitors to Santaland. All of this is told in the unique humorous style of David
Sedaris. If you love Sedaris here is an adult, mature look at Christmas through the eyes of a Macy’s elf.
This show is starring Richard Stephens as Crumpet the elf and will be directed by Pat Owens; both of these actors are well known & incredibly talented members of the Olympic Peninsula theater scene.
Come & enjoy yourself & have a laugh at the Christmas commercialism as described through the uniquely perceptive eyes of David Sedaris.

RT+ BOARD MEMBERS AND DUNGENESS SCHOOLHOUSE BOARD
On October 15th, Members of the Board of Readers Theatre Plus (RT+) were invited to attend The Dungeness Schoolhouse Board Meeting. Part of the reason for the invitation was to “present” a long-overdue “donation check” for $1,508.46. (The real check had already been delivered to MAC’s Executive Director in the summer!) The other reason for the invitation was to continue the clear lines of communication between the two organizations.
Every year, Readers Theatre Plus (RT+) shares the profits made on their Gilbert & Sullivan Fundraiser with The Peninsula Singers and The Dungeness Schoolhouse/MAC. In addition to this annual gift, in 2011, an entire RT+ production was presented to benefit The Schoolhouse. In total, over $10,750.00 has been donated to The Dungeness Schoolhouse/MAC from Readers Theatre Plus — and this is over and above the amount paid for rental for our performances! Both organizations were happy with the donation.
