If you love the performing arts, ZACH Theatre is the perfect place to spend some of your holiday season. For 2015, the hilarious, long-running Santaland Diaries is back, playing through December 27. Martin Burke stars as the ever-irreverent elf Crumpet in this outlandish and true tale penned by David Sedaris. Crumpet shows what it takes to juggle tiny tots and staggering Santas during a painfully festive time of the year. And to kick off the evening, chanteuse Meredith McCall and Martin take you on a sensational sleigh-ride of an all-new cabaret show created especially for ZACH. This merrily subversive and laugh 'til you cry evening will delight any adult audience. Also this season at ZACH is the classic A Christmas Carol, also running through December 27. Appropriate for ages five and up, this is the most popular show in ZACH's over 90-year history. ZACH's fresh take on A Christmas Carol features three soulful Ghosts making a joyful noise, while moving our hearts with the Cratchit family's love and Ebenezer Scrooge's miraculous transformation. ZACH's inspired adaptation of Charles Dickens' beloved classic juxtaposes a traditional Victorian setting and gorgeous period costumes with a modern musical score that spans genres and eras.
