Sponsored by Dean DeMaster and Marjory Taylor
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.

Christmas is nearly here... but things are not what they should be amongst the team that pulls Santa's sleigh. The rumour mill is in overdrive. Most agree Santa is no saint, but this time it seems he's gone too far. Something has happened with Vixen, and everyone has an opinion. What happens when the world's most untouchable man is accused and exposed? Where do alliances stand and fall? In the age of #MeToo Jeff Goode's The Eight: Reindeer Monologues has never been more relevant or important.

Grigware Reviews: RECOMMENDED
Stage Scene LA: WOW

Make no mistake about it, these reindeer games from Crown City Theatre Company are definitely for adults only. This dark-as-coal Christmas comedy finds the North Pole a hotbed of scandal after one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of jolly old sexual harassment. As the media catches the scent of scandal and invades Santa's innermost sanctuary, the rest of the reindeer chime in with their own perspectives. The result is a heinous, hilarious -- and timely -- tale of perversion and corruption, entangling everyone from the littlest elf in the workshop to Saint Nick himself in a sordid web of lust, lies and legends.

THE EIGHT: Reindeer Monologues

directed by Andrew Benevenuti

starring: Josh Bowen, Sarah Spring, Jason Garton, Sara Laursen, Cameron A. Tubbs, Rasik Ohal, Jason Michael Dick, Molly Megan Maynard


Santa's coming... "You'd better watch out"! Scandal at the North Pole! accusations, rumors, and all-out attacks are (still) flying fast and furious around the toy shop. Santa himself has been accused of sexual misconduct, and those that know him best have been interviewed to give their account of events. Hear about what happened directly from the horse's - or rather, Reindeers mouth! To put it mildly, the production is a stark alternative to A Christmas Carol and The Nutcracker. It offers up hilarious commentary on workplace harassment, gender politics, and the magic of Christmas. WARNING!! This show contains alarming content (though we won't ruin any surprises by giving away the specifics). FOUL-MOUTHED REINDEER and VERY inappropriate ADULT HUMOR! Definitely no kids or anyone who doesn't want to see the dark side of Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and the North Pole!

What happens when a light shines bright in the dark corners of an institution of happiness and joy? What happens to the one holding the flashlight? Is Vixen's story true?
