Reindeer Landing With Outrageous Holiday Joy Near You This Month


RES Productions and the Unlikely Theatre Proudly Present
The Eight Reindeer Monologues
By Jeff Goode


Directed by
Howard Allen


They're coming to Club Congress first, on November 19 and 20, and then landing at other stages all around Tucson.  Plus, they've got hilarious stories about working at the North Pole in a dysfunctional environment that makes your crazy boss look like a beginner.  Dasher (Jeff Robinson) starts with a practically military devotion to being "the leader of The Eight," and Vixen (Laine Peterson) ends the evening of hilarity with the "truth" about the National Media Scandal over rumors of sexual harassment at the Pole.  Anyone who can use a little ADULT black comedy to get over the usual conventional and commercial nonsense of the Holidays is in for major laughs. These very "human" reindeer deliver on the crazy office politics we have all experienced.  What's worse: they know the "whole truth" about poor Rudolf. 


RES Productions and the Unlikely Theatre bring you eight of the very best actors in Tucson for comedy in the style of Saturday Night Live with addition of wonderful and sometimes poignant testimony from "reindeer" who have their own stories to tell about Santa and even Mrs. Claus (at last year's office party).  All directed by the 2007 MAC award winning Best Director in Tucson, Howard Allen.
