"Santaland" Top 10

David Letterman has done thousands of Top 10 lists, but we've never seen one about an ACT show? So we created our own. Here are the Top 10 reasons to see ACT's upcoming performance -- "The Santaland Diaries."

1. "Santaland" earned "Best Locally Produced Show" and "Best Live Show: Theatre" honors from the Mountain Xpress' Best of WNC, 2008. Translation: people love this show!

2. Who doesn't want to see Tom Chalmers in tights? (See, there he is.)

3. You've been too nice to be believable to Santa. Time to indulge in some naughty.

4. It's written by David Sedaris. That means it has to be funny.

5. It stars Crumpet the Elf, who is way funnier than Will Ferrell's "Elf."

6. Toys .... All the toys.

7. Every time a cynical man in an elf costume gets a laugh, somewhere a new child gets a puppy.

8. "Santaland" comments on the best and worst of people during the holiday season. It's fun to see if you can spot yourself somewhere along the way.

9. A perfect opportunity to become part of a great Asheville holiday tradition.

10. With your ticket purchase you get a free drink at Magnolia's, which is right across the street from ACT. Nice!

"The Santaland Diaries" stars Tom Chalmers and is directed by Josh Batenhorst. The show runs December 10 - 19, Thursdays - Saturdays, at 7:30pm. Box office online, or by calling 828-254-1320.
