Santa’s Evil Twin

Forget about misbehaved kids receiving coal for Christmas. What if all the naughty ones were dragged to Hell by a horned, fanged beast? A little extreme, you think? Not to Alpine cultures, where German folklore dictates that right before Saint Nick arrives, spreading all of his Yuletide cheer, a devilish underworld creature — the half-goat, halfdemon Krampus — stops by and takes all the mischievous children off into the Black Forest. The Abyss Stage is bringing this macabre Germanic tradition to American audiences this weekend with its local production, The Krampus. Producers promise this fully immersive theatrical experience will “scare the jingle bells right off everyone,” so audiences better be on their best behavior for the show. Celebrate the underbelly of the holiday season with a good festive fright this Friday and Saturday, with two shows each night, at 8 and 10 p.m., at the Abyss Stage, 2304 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors. Tickets cost $20. Visit infinite-abyss. org, or call 954-326-7767.
