Santa’s Reindeer Return for More Performances this Weekend!


“This play is tasteless, dark, dirty and downright hilarious.” –Kathy Allen, Arizona Daily Star


See the show that has left audiences around town applauding for more- Jeff Goode’s The Eight: Reindeer Monologues! Presented by RES Productions and the Unlikely Theatre, this touring production will be making a late night stop at Live Theatre Workshop this Friday, December 5, at 10:30pm, and then landing at Club Congress for an evening performance, Saturday, December 6 at 7:30pm, and then departing with a Sunday matinee (also at Club Congress) at 3pm.


Tickets can be purchased online here, or reserved by calling 520.982.0169:







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.

Starring Steve McKee, Garrett Staab, Eric Anson, Chris Farishon, Roxanne Harley, Jeff Robinson, Laine Peterson, Alida-Wilson Gunn and Chad Collins (as Cupid in the last 4 performances).

See what local newspapers are saying about the cast:

“There wasn't a disappointment in the ensemble piece. But Alida Holguin Gunn as the street-wise, tough-gal Comet, a Santa supporter (he did, afterall, save her from a life on the streets), stood out.” –Kathy Allen, Arizona Daily Star


“Roxanne Harley delivers what is ultimately the most poignant, if not entirely relevant, monologue as Dancer, who keenly misses being able to dance. Eric Anson does some of his best work ever as Donner, Rudolph's father, who struggles to justify selling out on so many levels.” –James Reel, Tucson Weekly


And, on Laine Peterson, who plays the infamous Vixen:

“Imagine Sarah Silverman with antlers.”-James Reel, Tucson Weekly
