The latest news about the Spectrum Theatre Ensemble 


The santaland diaries

...Is coming to town! Spectrum Theatre Ensemble is at it again with this beloved adaptation of a true David Sedaris gem. Come join Crumpet, in a real life mall, and get the all the delicious tidbits and anecdotes of what it’s really like to work in a mall during the happiest time of the year.

A one-man marathon, this production is a departure from STE’s most recent hit ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’. But the creative minds here at the Ensemble have found a way to curiously endeavor the merits and community of an ensemble in this one-man show. Don’t tell us no, because we will find a way.

More announcements to come as this holiday classic stretches its loins in preparation for the mounting shopping season!
