The Kram­pus: Ini­ti­a­tion

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - ON STAGE -

Santa’s side­kick — no, make that Santa’s evil side­kick — Kram­pus takes the spot­light in the In­fi­nite Abyss com­pany’s al­ter­na­tive hol­i­day show. The half-goat, half-de­mon beast is based on Ger­man folk­lore and con­jures up the dark side of holly jolly, scar­ing the jin­gle bells out of Bavar­ian chil­dren for cen­turies. The anti-St. Ni­cholas swats naughty chil­dren with birch sticks and takes the really bad kids to the un­der­world. In In­fi­nite Abyss’ im­mer­sive play, the Nacht Kinder Bestellen (the Or­der of the Night Chil­dren) con­venes to pass the Kram­pus power on­ward. Should au­di­ence mem­bers want to take part, they are en­cour­aged to dress in evening at­tire and wear a mask. When: 8 p.m. Fri­day and Satur­day; 10:30 p.m. Satur­day Where: The Abyss The­atre, 2304 N. Dixie High­way, Wil­ton Manors. Cost: $20 Con­tact: 954-326-7767 or In­fi­nite-Abyss.org
