Sugar Plum Gary – Emmett Montgomery @ 18th and Union (Seattle – Central District)
Dec 16 @ 7:00 pm

Sugar Plum Gary returns to 18th & Union this December with his annual gift of Cosmic Christmas Horror for the whole family.

A gentle-hearted “Santanist,” Sugar Plum Gary is a bushy bearded man in jolly footie pajamas who has been possessed by the Holiday Spirit ever since he experienced the real Santa, an ancient and sinister creature who is more Lovecraft than Dickens. Now, every day is literally Christmas for Gary, and through improvisational conversation with the audience, he shares the real reason for the season.

Asking simply, “Does anyone have a question about Christmas?” Gary unfolds an evening of hilarious and twisted holiday glee that makes each show a truly unique treat. Dubbed “legitimately Seattle’s best holiday tradition” by Seattle Weekly, audiences love to pose their wildest holiday questions, and with Gary’s help, some of them may even learn how to survive the night!

Both in-person attendance and live-stream option (for some performance dates) available.

Tickets $10-$50 (sliding-scale available for all) here.

Christmas with Creed Bratton @ Neptune Theatre (Seattle – U-District)
Dec 18 @ 8:00 pm

A Holiday celebration and toy drive

Mysterious, eccentric, good-hearted, and downright talented are all words that have been used to describe actor and musician Creed Bratton over the years. Creed may be best known for starring as a fictional version of himself on nine seasons of the award winning, critically acclaimed NBC series “The Office.” For nearly eight years fans worldwide grew to love him as Dunder Mifflin’s quality assurance director who unapologetically forgets the names of his own co-workers, and says bizarre confusing statements on a regular basis. If Creed was onscreen, laughs were sure to follow.

While Creed may be best known for his on-screen antics, he is also an established musician with a career in music that spans nearly five decades, and he isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

Please consider donating an unwrapped toy to make a child’s holiday special.
