“The SantaLand Diaries” follows a young man as he becomes an elf in Macy’s SantaLand. At first he finds the job simply humiliating, but soon it becomes more than he can handle and he takes out his frustrations on unsuspecting parents and children. Rachel Kuhnle, the director of the production, considers "The SantaLand Diaries" to be a new holiday classic. “Whether you buy into the Santa Clause craziness or abhor it, love your job or hate your job, believe in the true meaning of Christmas or are merely living for the spiked eggnog, ‘SantaLand’ has laughs for everyone," said Kuhnle. She added, expressively "It is the perfect politically incorrect holiday nightcap for parents after the kids have gone to bed.”
“The SantaLand Diaries”, with its sarcastic remarks and sassy humor is running alongside the family oriented “A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas” at the Franklin Square Black Box in downtown St. Croix Falls. Tickets for both holiday shows are selling fast, and with limited capacity in the Franklin Square Black Box, patrons are encouraged to make their reservations as soon as possible. Tickets are $26 for adults and $13.50 for students (ages 5-25) and can be purchased at FestivalTheatre.org, firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the box office at 715-483-3387.
