"A hilarious dose of late-night entertainment where the reindeer tell-all about Santa. The actors do an amazing job of portraying the essence of their reindeer and the script is bawdy with moments of tenderness. This show is a perfect night-cap." ---Jessie, Lomita, CA


Back again for another round of holiday mayhem, our favorite team of reindeer still have plenty to say! Accusations, rumors and all-out attacks are flying fast and furious around Santa's toyshop this holiday season. What's the true story behind Rudolph's unlikely rise to fame? Does Mrs. Claus have a serious drinking problem? Can St. Nick himself really be guilty of sexual harassment... against one of the reindeer? And with all this going on, how can the spirit of Christmas be saved? Go behind the tinsel and hear the truth about Santa straight from the eight reindeer who know him best. When a doe says "No", she means "No Way, Sucka!"

The Eight: Reindeer Monologues is a story about Santa's beloved reindeer and their issues with sexual harassment, alcoholism, homosexuality and the working conditions of Santa's toyshop. When one member of the sleight team speaks out, the media wants answers to what happened that night in the toyshop. The dark comedy, set in the North Pole, takes you through each of the famous reindeer's thoughts on the outrageous claims against Mr. Claus. With all of this going on, will the spirit of Christmas survive?

Blitz!

This weekend we had the second Blitz of the year. A Blitz is 24-hour theatre. That is, the theater guild throws a party at 9 pm on Friday and, depending on who shows up, they pick a play to perform. They come up with a set, basic costumes, and props and run through a handful of times so that the play will be performed at 9 pm on Saturday. It's a lot of fun, especially if you are looking for a good excuse to stay up until odd hours of night.

This go round we performed The Eight: Reindeer Monologues. The play is simply eight monologues, each told by one of Santa Claus's eight reindeer. Without going into too much detail, the story revolves around a sordid scandal in the North Pole.

Each of the reindeer are bold caricatures: Dasher was portrayed as a gung-ho general who was "number one from day one." Cupid was the flamboyant reindeer; I played Prancer, the self-centered actor; Blitzen was an ardent feminist; Cupid was the troubled buck who was taken in and reformed; Dancer was the only Jewish reindeer; Donner was the good-for-nothing father of Rudolph; and Vixen was the promiscuous doe that started the whole scandal.

It was jolly fun.

Starring Glynis Board, Jay Creamer, Anthony C. Edwards, Eddie Freedom, Christopher Ogden, Angela Lacey-McCracken, Breanna Linden and Michael Workman.

Revered and admired throughout the land, he's a man of many names - Father Christmas, Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, or as one of his reindeer calls him, "a walking, talking, holly-jolly, sex crime waiting to happen".

Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment. As mass media descends upon the event, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself. With each deer's confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer... and murkier and murkier. (Adult language and sexual content.)

Tuesday through Sunday at 8:00 p.m.


The Reindeer Monologues is all about Santa's 8 reindeer and what it's like to work in the North Pole the day before Christmas Eve. Directed by Jim Hyde, proceeds from the shows will directly help the great work of three charities serving Cork and Munster: ARC Cancer Support House, the Breast Care Unit of The South Infirmary Hospital and Cork's Hearing-Impaired and Deaf community.

Kind of like The Office, but set in the Arctic Circle this great show, by Jeff Goode of the USA, gives everyone the chance to get a break from Panto's this Christmas and see some silly grown-up humour about what Santa really uses those sleigh rides for! The 8 reindeer are: Dasher (the serious one); Cupid (the silly one); Blitzen (the fiery one); Hollywood (the egotistical one); Comet (the tough one); Donner (the fatherly one); Dancer (the cute one) and Vixen (the flirty one). There's also a couple of elves thrown into the mix.

Starring Cora Fenton, Adrian Scanlan, Taylor Lane, Kate McSwiney-O'Rourke and Brian Stynes,

The Reindeer Monologues is on at the Cork Arts Theatre (Carroll's Quay) from Dec 11 to Dec 16 (Tuesday to Sunday night). Please call 021 450 5624 to book.

Top line: This isn't for kids. Think of it as the gin and tonic reward for those who are already holidayed out: Something cool with a refreshing bite.

The dark Christmas comedy suits New Stage Theatre's Unframed series, where alternative theater goes to entertain. Highly irreverent, it skewers ol' Santa and company in a sendup from the reindeer's point of view.

"Charges have been brought against Santa for inappropriate conduct, so basically each reindeer is giving his take," says Chris Roebuck, who's playing Comet.

Horning in: "It wouldn't be good theater if it were regular old reindeer talking, so each one of them has serious dysfunctions." Comet, for instance, is a former drug addict who Santa Claus saved by putting him on the team.

Dasher, played by Turner Crumbley, is the herd superhero and group leader - "No. 1 from Day One" in his own words and "a cross between a Dirty Dozen Lee Marvin and Denis Leary," Crumbley says.

"It's a very funny black comedy, in the style of really mean standup."

These deer aren't the smiling furry flyers you've grown up with. As Crumbley says, "They're rode hard and put up wet."

The savage humor becomes a comment on political correctness in this satire of gender and sexual politics.

The show's for mature audiences only, so as not to traumatize the kiddies. It's directed by veteran New Stage, film and TV actor Rus Blackwell.


Directed by Rus Blackwell, starring Turner Crumbley, Beth Kander, Danny Dauphin, Richard Lawrence, John Howell, Kristin Patton, Chris Roebuck and Jaymee Vowell.

Rudolph is in a padded cell, Santa is on a bender, and the reindeer are talking to anyone who'll listen in Jeff Goode's hard-hitting, chocolatey-dark holiday confection. This hysterically tart alternative to the usual sugar-coated holiday fare sees scandal erupt at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of decidedly un-Christmas like behavior. As the media descends, the other members of the elite sleigh team share their articulate (and sometimes sordid) confessions, a tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to Saint Nick himself.

Directed by August Viverito

Featuring the Elite Eight themselves:
Kathleen Johnston, Ethan Kogan, T.L.Kolman, Jeremy Lelliott, Skip Pipo, Vance Roi Reyes, Leslie Rivera, Jessica Silvetti

(2007 assumed because their myspace page - discover 7/4/08 only has photos of three productions - presumeably their most recent: Reindeer Monologues, Christmas Carol and Importance of Being Earnest. Earnest. The latter was their March 2008 production.)
