We begin with a brief reception at 5:30 p.m. and dinner starting at 6:00. Parents who would like their children to get a gift from Santa may off drop small, wrapped (no bags please) & clearly labeled items in Gävle’s “Green Room”, accessible by way of the service corridor behind (on the north side) of Gävle 3. Gifts must not exceed $15.

Employees attending Smörgåsbord may purchase discounted tickets to Santaland Diaries!  Santaland Diaries runs December 12-15. Those purchasing a ticket will get their seating assignment at the theatre.  Just head to the ticket window before the performance and let them know that you have already booked your ticket and would like your seating assignment.  Santaland Diaries is for mature elves only!

Staring Keenan Odenkirk

Think you're stressed out during the holidays? Try being one of Santa's helpers. Turns out being surrounded by children, tinsel and merriment isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Humorist David Sedaris shares a collection of fanciful stories about a somewhat-flawed Macy's department store elf named Crumpet. Based on his experiences, this irreverent look at the holiday season is for mature elves only.

Tickets are $20.00 each.

This show contains adult language and is intended for mature audiences only.

The Bald Soprano

American Idiot

May 7 - 9 at 7:30 p.m. and May 10 at 1:30 p.m.

The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day's American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.

Ticket prices range from $10 - $15.

Augustana students get in free.
