Whangarei, New Zealand
Christmas 2009
Old Library


A play in which Santa molests and rapes his reindeer has been postponed until after Christmas for fear of shocking festive-spirited families.

Reindeer Monologues was to be performed in Whangarei but was postponed when producers began to fear children would come to the adult-themed performance.

Performances of Reindeer Monologues will begin on March 23 next year.

Lights up in 4 days
YAY tech week! Long nights, crazy arguments, sugar rushes.... I love tech week! We open on Friday December 3...... and get this, we get to perform on a real stage! It's the school auditorium at P.S. 19 on Staten Island (Clove rd. and Post ave just passed Forest), it is really simple and nice, and the set looks amazing, even though it isn't finished yet. I can't wait! Godspell is going on tour starting in January.... that is kinda exciting, I haven't toured with a show since I was a child. The Eight Reindeer Monologues is coming up soon also, (December 16-18) we had to but up a NC17 rating for it... lol.... they are going to card at the door. I really love working with BTAP! (www.btap.org)
Note - Dec 16-18 is also the erroneous date listed for the 2005 BTAP production, so it's probable that this entry ALSO is also lingering error from 2004

From: peter dixon To: JeffGoode@aol.com Sent: Sun, Sep 20, 2009 10:24 pm Subject: The Eight I wanted to put on a performance of The Eight and was wondering how I go about doing that. I also was wondering if anyone has the rights to turn the play into a film. If not, I was wondering how I could obtain those rights. Thanks, Peter

Dear Jeff

My name is Sean Christopher Lewis- I am a grad of the MFA Playwrights Workshop and have decided to re-settle in Iowa City with a few other MFA's and found a theater company. We are hoping to do a celebrity version of 8 Reindeer Monologues at the Mill (where we'd have people like Eric Forsythe, Kevin BF Burt and others play the roles on a rotating basis) and I wanted to ask about acquiring the rights?

Hope you're well. Viva Iowa!

Hi there Jeff

I am inspired to put your play on! I saw it in Australia and I loved it. I am an Aussie living in Canada and would like to perform it in Vancouver during the Xmas period.

At this moment I am a productive and inspired actress. It looks like it will be an amateur production. I would like to inquire how I can make this happen with getting the royalties.

Alternatively, if I can find someone to fund the production how much would the royalties be?

I would love to find a 50-100 seater in Vancouver for a 2 or 3 week run. I would love to have comedic actors. As a casting assistant and director in Canada over the last 4 years i know a lot of fabulous talent!

Thanks so much and congratulations on all your success!

Thanks and cheers,

Productive Australian Hollie!!!

This production was postponed and moved to the Union Theatre in 2010 (supposedly. Actually just postponed)

100 metres from Victoria station)


My name is Jon Nathan and I am an actor/producer based in London. I have recently formed a production company with an associate of mine, Matt Lloyd Davies and last week we discovered The Eight. We have fallen in love with it! I would like to find out how to go about licensing it for a run of about 3 weeks this coming December. I am currently putting together a budget for my financial backers and was wondering if you could give me some idea about how much it would cost, even a ball park figure at this stage would be helpful. I am anticipating putting it on at a theatre called (believe it or not) The Stag! It's a new, intimate (approx) 70 seater in the West End. We anticipate at this stage having a fairly small budget and would like to get the ball rolling on pre production as soon as possible.

Kimmie Wrazien implies that they might do the play again (in 2009?):

Post Holiday Greetings Mr. Goode!

Just wanted to pass along some cast photos and a copy of our program.

Also to let you know that it was incredibly well received. Our first weekend we had a total audience count of 80 (which is GREAT for our area) and the second weekend did not do so well mainly due to the weather (we had to cancel one performance due to a snow storm) and because it was the weekend right before the holidays. So we will know to schedule better for next year! But we had great feed back from those that did attend and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all! And I know the cast and myself had too much fun rehearsing and performing it.

Hello Jeff, Do you know if Ann Marie is still in Oregon? Anyone ask for "The 8" in Portland for XMAS '09? Anyone doing it here this year? No, I don't want to direct it this year, not enough time. But I'm thinking seriously on next year. If Ann Marie was still around, I'd like to talk with her early because she was interested in switching roles and I want to know if she's still game. But golly, I haven't talked with her in years! Ta, Lichen
