One of the best parts of Christmas in Bloomsburg are the annual Christmas shows that our own Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble puts on. BTE has a rich tradition of delighting locals and visitors each year with classics and contemporary shows that are great for the entire family. This year is no different with an incredibly funny and smart show written by humorist David Sedaris. David’s hilarious recounting of a holiday season spent working as an elf at Macy’s, The Santaland Diaries is the perfect antidote to that relentless Christmas Cheer. This one-man show is a holiday classic-in-the-making. Go ahead, indulge your inner Scrooge!

If you aren’t familiar with David Sedaris’ work, pick up Holiday on Ice or Me Talk Pretty One Day. From his biographical page,

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America ‘s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.David Sedaris is the author of the bestsellers Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, each of which became immediate bestsellers.

Make it a point to head out to see The Santaland Diaries, by David Sedaris and directed locally by Elizabeth Dowd. This special early season showing is at the the Moose Exchange and won’t last long, running from December 8-11, 2011. Buy tickets at or email or call 570-784-8181 or 800-282-0283
