Finally... something different for Christmas! Eight reindeer dishing about the REAL Santa! All those rumors you've heard about him and the elves? About Rudolph's little secret? About Vixen's story that was leaked to the press? All true. yes, the reindeer finally speak up and - believe it - they do not hold back! Some mature themes. http://www.casadesolana.com/st-augustine-events-calendar/reindeer-monologues.htm : On Sunday evenings, Raintree Restaurant hosts Dinner & A Show in their upstairs dining room. In December, the reindeer totally dish on Santa! You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, but when scandal erupts at the North Pole after one of the eight accuses Santa of sexual harassment, you’ll not believe what you hear! As the media gets wind of the information, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption emerges, one that 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. Once the reindeer, start dishin’, they don’t hold back! Some mature themes. Dinner is at 6 pm, with suggested arrival time at 5:30 pm. The show begins at 7 pm and is $39.99 per person. Raintree has been recognized nationally and internationally for nearly 30 years as one of Florida's top destination restaurants. Reservations are required. Call 904.824.7211.

For our Holiday show we will be presenting Jeff Goode's The 8 Reindeer Monologues This Holiday season The Cuckoo’s Theater Project brings wit & mayhem to the stage. What can be said about Santa and his reindeer? Not a lot. We know of them because they were introduced in the song Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. There is no mention of their personalities till now. In Jeff Goode’s The 8 Reindeer monologues a scandal has erupted on the North Pole. When one of Santa’s reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment a media circus descends on the North Pole. As each member of the sleigh team shares their perspective of horrific tails of corruption and perversion, which seem to implicate everyone from the tiniest elf to the tainted saint himself. With each deer’s confession, The Truth Behind the Shocking allegations become clearer and clearer and murkier and murkier

Looking for something different for Christmas this year? Tired of Christmas Carol and Gift of the Magi? Well, the Eight Reindeer Monologues are for you: eight reindeer dishing about the real Santa. All those rumors you've heard about him and the elves? About Rudolph's little secret? About Vixen's story that was leaked to the press? All true. Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and -- believe us -- they do not hold back!

You’ve heard about the rumors about him and what he does in the toy shop. You’ve seen Vixen on late night talk shows, and heard about Rudolph’s big secret. Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and believe us: they do not hold back! Eight: The Reindeer Monologues is an adult romp up to the North Pole (and down Santa’s… well, you get the idea). Contains mature language and subject matter.

THE EIGHT: The Reindeer Monologues
a NECAT Fundraiser Sunday, December 7 at 7:00 pm

Rhubarb Theater Company brings a barbed bite to the holiday winds on the darkest night of Christmas.
Looking for a dash of bitters in your egg nog? Yeah, we get that.
This show is not for children or the faint of heart.

Join us for a One-Night-Only performance of Jeff Goode's THE EIGHT: The Reindeer Monologues, benefitting Nashville Education, Community, and Arts Television (NECAT) with a show that makes even David Sedaris?s dark holiday humor sound like Disney.

Following a human resources “incident,” one by one the eight reindeer explain what it's really like to work for the fat man.

What makes this show special?

1. It's daaaaark and snarky to cleanse your palette from all the sugar plums and candy sprinkles.

2. The performance is in a groovy TV studio with spiked egg nog and warm cookies for guests helping support public arts, public education, and public access television.

3. Performers will be wearing special effects prosthetics and makeup by Syfy channel Face Off artist Rick Prince (www.rickprince.com).

4. Rarely, rarely, would you see these 8 actors in the same show—but with 8 monologues…there are 8 leads.

Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and -believe us - they do not hold back!

Here at Steel City Theatre, we love what we do, and are so grateful that we get to spend our days creating art with a wonderful and talented group of actors, technicians, and staff. We serve a diverse and unique community in Pueblo, CO, and have created several program areas to help meet the needs in our area, including our entertaining and professional productions, high-quality training through the Performing Arts Academy, community outreach through the SCTC Players, and the cherry to top it off- summer VIP Camp. In 2013, after being a “gypsy” company for many years, Steel City Theatre finally secured its own theatrical performance space at the historic Patti’s Restaurant location at 241 S Santa Fe Ave, Pueblo, CO 81003. In our new location, we will be offering evenings of fun, food, drink, and performances in all genres. We are always looking for new friends and participants, and hope you will join us in the audience, onstage as an actor, by volunteering behind the scenes, by serving on a committee, by becoming a donor or sponsor, or by signing up your child for one of our children’s programs. Stop by and see the renovations to our new location! See you at the theatre!

THE EIGHT: REINDEER MONOLOGUES

by Jeff Goode

There's  something going on at The North Pole and THE EIGHT share their speculations and allegations during this rollicking evening of unconventional Christmas comedy.

Returning for the third time* in Canton, this critically acclaimed event stars Jackie Dietz, Heather Wylie-ElFaye, Greg Emanuelson, Roman Feemster, Robert  Fockler, Grayden Provance, David Sponhour and Jodi Wilson.

Book the babysitter, grab a Peppermint Martini and get downtown to experience one of the most outrageous holiday shows to ever hit the Howland! Performances at 8:00 p.m. Friday December 12, Saturday December 13, Friday December 19, Saturday December 20.  Tickets $10.00

Mature language and content. Not recommended for children.


* Previous productions in Canton were in 2004 & 2010.
According to Samuel French, this production is produced by Donaghmore Ashbourne Drama Group but that seems unlikely, as that group is in County Meath Ireland I am assuming this is a clerical error.

The Eight: Reindeer Monologues

Written by Jeff Goode
Directed by Jonathan Westerberg

Sound Design by Tim Labor
Featuring: Bob Clendenin, Gwyn McColl, Jim Anzide, Casey Smith, Richard Augustine, Melanie Jeffcoat, Alisa Tangredi and Jon Lovick

The founders of Circle X Theatre Co. return for a special one-night only benefit performance celebrating our first 18 years as a theatre company. Join us as we gather the original 1996 cast, except for one guy (long story).

A dark, dark Christmas comedy. 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.


Facebook 9/27/14: Hey Jeff, we were talking about possibly doing a fundraiser in December with a one night presentation of your play The Eight with the original circle x cast (since it was our first production). Are you around to be involved? Any objections? Let me know about rights, etc. Thanks! Tim

!!!3rd ANNUAL PRODUCTION!!!

ONE NIGHT ONLY!!!: Dec. 20. 8 pm & 10 pm

THIS SHOW CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE & THEMES, and ALCOHOL WILL BE SERVED…(much like your normal, family Christmas gathering — but with the whole world watching)

This isn't the Santa you've come to know and love. But don't take our word for it; come hear it straight from the, er, Reindeers' mouths. All those rumors about him and the elves? And Rudolph's little secret? And Vixen's scandalous story? Yes, the reindeer finally speak up — and they don't hold back! This is a no-hooves-barred, reinless romp through the North Pole, as each of “The Eight” takes a turn on the stage to tell their own side of the story.

A cross between Scrooged and The Accused, THE EIGHT offers a Christmas alternative to those adults looking for something just a little different, and a lot more grown up, this holiday season as the eight reindeers who pull Santa's sleigh every year are called to bear witness to the reputation and innocence (or not) of their employer.

On paper, this is a frightfully cynical exercise in besmirching the reputation of the jolly fat man in the red suit. In performance, it is a series of eight very hysterical and very poignant monologues that aim to explore the nature of cover-ups, and which bring into question the value of speaking out when remaining silent might be better for the greater good.
