WaterTower Theatre's THE GAME'S AFOOT and THE SANTALAND DIARIES to Open Dec 13

It's December 1936 and stage star William Gillette, an iconic actor admired all over the world for his role as Sherlock Holmes, is shot onstage during a show. While he recuperates, he invites his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a lively Christmas weekend of fun. But, when one of his guests is found stabbed to death, the fun turns dangerous. It's up to Gillette, as his assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to find the killer before someone else is killed. The hilarity is non-stop in what is a glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays! Oh, did we mention it's written by Tony Award winner Ken Ludwig (Lend me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo).

The Santaland Diaries is an outrageously funny one-man play (from National Public Radio's well-loved humorist David Sedaris) about the author's experiences as an unemployed actor/writer taking a job as an elf at Macy's department store in New York City. This delightfully tart tale takes a wry look at how the holiday season brings out the best - and the worst - in us all.
