Horizon Theatre Company is bringing back the family favorite Madeline’s Christmas and David Sedaris’ comedic gem The Santaland Diaries.
The Santaland Diaries jumpstarts the holiday season on November 21. Directed by co-artistic and technical director Jeff Adler, this satirical play features our merry misanthrope, Crumpet, played for the 16th year by Harold M. Leaver, as he recounts the tale of his stint as a Macy’s Department Store elf. Adapted from David Sedaris’ best-selling book Holidays on Ice, this holiday tale is a modern classic, made famous when it aired on National Public Radio. Joining Leaver this year as Crumpet’s sidekicks are Enoch King and LaLa Cochran. The Santaland Diaries contains mature language and situations. It is not intended for children. Running November 21 through December 31, tickets and information are available at www.horizontheatre.com or by calling 404-584-7450.
A delightful treat for the whole family, Madeline’s Christmas returns this holiday season for the seventh year. Horizon, in collaboration with The Atlanta Children’s Theatre Company, reprises the delightful musical adaptation of Ludwig Bemelmans’ classic children’s book. Based on one of the most popular characters of all time, the production features 24 local girls performing alongside professional actors in two irresistibly adorable casts. Madeline and her friends are sure to enchant audiences of all ages with their holiday adventure filled with laughter, magic, and newfound friends.
In the production’s seven-year history, over 120 local girls have realized their dream of performing with a professional theatre company as part of the Madeline’s Christmas cast. This year’s cast features girls ages 8 to 12 from five metro-Atlanta counties and 20 different schools. Madeline’s Christmas runs December 6 through 31. Tickets and information are available at www.horizontheatre.com or by calling 404-584-7450.
