The Santa Diaries, an original play by Laura Ambler and Mala Burt is now in its third production by the Merlin Players in Faribault, Minnesota. This is community theater at it’s best. Performances will be held at the Paradise Center for the Arts, a restored movie theatre much like the Avalon where The Santa Diaries premiered. There will be seven performances in early December 2014 – other exciting collaboration between the authors, the actors, the directors, producers and every other person involved in getting this play on stage.
This blog recounts the journey of The Santa Diaries. It premiered in Easton, Maryland on December 23, 2012 and that run of seven shows raised over $31,000 for the Avalon Foundation. Ambler and Burt are excited to see how the Merlin Players puts its own stamp on their play.
