What's Happening on Stage in Atlanta in December
WAFFLE PALACE CHRISTMAS
November 16 - December 30
Horizon Theatre Company is ringing in the holiday season with a new tradition! Waffle Palace Christmas, is a sequel to the smash-hit show inspired by real events at Waffle House restaurants. "After staging several sell-out runs of Waffle Palace in past years, we're excited to bring back the beloved all-night diner and its staff in a new edition perfect for the holiday season," said Co-Artistic/Producing Director Lisa Adler. Waffle Palace Christmas picks up with the vintage Waffle Palace now thriving in the middle of a new modern city multi-use complex. The holiday season is in full swing and the staff is adjusting to new roles, an inexperienced employee and quirky regulars. With Christmas cheer aplenty among the diverse staff and diners, Krampus, a legendary, shape-shifting holiday villain, appears over the restaurant to sabotage the spirit and challenge all in his path.
