Atlanta’s red-hot holiday sensation The Santaland Diaries recounts the true-life tale of an out-of-work writer’s stint as a Macy’s Department Store Elf.

About the Project

The Santaland Diaries, staring Harold M. Leaver and featuring Enoch King and LaLa Cochran, returns to Horizon Theatre from November 18 thru December 31! The outrageous holiday comedy, written by NPR comic genius and best-selling author David Sedaris, stars Crumpet, a rebel without a Claus who recounts the true-life tale of an out-of-work writer's stint as a Macy's Department Store elf. Help us bring this Atlanta holiday tradition back for its 18th smash year! The funding provided will help us support our local artists who not only perform in the show, but all the elves that work behind the scenes to make this annual tradition fun and fresh every year.
