The Santaland Diaries: Crumpet's Top 10 Holiday Wishes NUMBER 10

The Santaland Diaries is back for the 12th year in a row at Asheville Community Theatre! This year's production stars Bradshaw Call and is directed by Betsy Puckett. They've cooked up a really creative way to tell this story - and we can't wait to see it!

The Santaland Diaries is, in a nutshell, an "oh my gosh that's SO true" elf's eye view of massive meltdowns, ridiculous expectations, and customer service holiday horrors. If you've ever worked retail during the holidays - or really, if you've ever been in a retail store during the holidays - this story will seem all too true. And guess what? It IS a true story!

Crumpet is the elf name our narrator is required to go by during his stint working at Macy's Herald Square. He's not thrilled about that. Or about a number of other things. So, we put together a list of his Top Ten wishes that would make his holidays a little better. Count down with us all the way to number one! Plus, watch for our "caption this" photo (hint: we'll release it on Wednesday afternoon) to win two free tickets to The Santaland Diaries!
