Down Santa Claus Lane

Every Santa's been there. One minute you’re dropping off a little gift, just trying to do your Santa business, and the next you realize—"Whoops! Slipped down the wrong chimney." The first tip-off is usually a startled woman screaming at you. "It's slippery out," you say, trying to calm her down. "I just fell in...Go back to sleep." Happens all the time. Sorry! Wrong Chimney!, a play by Jack Sharkey and Leo W. Sears, recounts a similar tale of holiday high jinks, suspicious women and mistaken identity. If you've ever wanted to see a community theater version of Bad Santa, then this one's for you. Catch it at 8 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the Runway Theatre, 215 N. Dooley St. in Grapevine. Tickets are $15; $10 for seniors and students. Call 817-488-4842 or visit
Fri., Dec. 15, 8 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 16, 8 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 17, 3 p.m.
