The Santaland Diaries- Based on the true chronicles of NPR comic genius David Sedaris’ experience as Crumpet the Elf in Macy’s Santaland display, this cult classic riffs on a few of Sedaris’ truly odd encounters with his fellow man during the height of the holiday crunch. The play contains mature content and is not recommended for children.

A caveman may not have captured his mate by bopping her upside the 
head, but you can be sure that her friends and his believed he did and 
spread the word as far and wide as possible. Yep, scandalmongering has 
always been a favorite pastime. It was so in 1777 when Richard Brinsley 
Sheridan wrote the delicious satire The School for Scandal, and it is 
undeniably true today when social media make instantaneous spreading 
of gossip and rumors almost de rigueur.
 
Adept director Diane Malone proves it with the cunning production now 
playing at The Classic Theatre. Her version retains most of Sheridan’s 
florid, witty script and characters but sets it in contemporary times when 
everyone has a cell phone. Her large, exceptionally strong cast is 
unfailingly energetic and comical.

Take a gander at the names of the characters listed in the program for Classic Theatre's "School for Scandal" -- Lady Sneerwell, Mr. Joseph Surface, Sir Benjamin Backbite -- and you'll have a pretty good idea of what unfolds.

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1777 comedy of manners is set among a group of mostly wealthy people for who trade bits of gossip as if it were currency -- people who, as one character puts it, "murder character to kill time."
