As a small, struggling grass-roots theater company, the Hunger Artists could be excused for spending the days before Christmas longing for some Santa Claus of thespians to drop down the chute with a sackful of goodies. The theater, on the second floor of an office building in downtown Santa Ana, is equipped with scavenged "hand-me-downs of hand-me-downs of hand-me-downs," as Mark Palkoner, one of its managing directors, puts it.

Many who live or work in the area say high rents are driving out the artists. And they complain that timid city officials have failed to promote the area and blocked creative ideas. City officials lured artists to the area with the hope that investment would follow.

Like most holidays, Halloween is long on tradition. According to Irish legend, there once lived a night watchman named Jack who ran into an unusual predicament when his time came to pass on: He was too much of a sinner to enter heaven, yet since he had played tricks on the devil, he was not permitted into hell either. Both sides eventually reached a compromise and forced Jack to walk the roads of the Earth until Judgment Day, carrying a lantern to make his infamy known to all those around him.
