CRUMPET’S BACK! STRUTTIN’ HIS STUFF ON HENNEPIN AVENUE ONCE AGAIN!
We’re thrilled to bring back our annual alternative holiday classic, David Sedaris’ THE SANTALAND DIARIES, the stage adaptation of his hilarious account of his stint as a Christmas elf in Macy’s “SantaLand.” THE SANTALAND DIARIES will play for 11 performances at The Cowles Center for Dance & Performing Arts from Dec. 13-23, located at 528 Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. The production will once again feature Twin Cities actor Joe Leary as “Crumpet the Elf,” with scenery by Brendan and Steve Rohde, costumes by Kathy Kohl, lighting by Mike Wangen and sound by Sarah Pickett with assistance from Katharine Horowitz. Frank Theatre Artistic Director Wendy Knox directs the production.

“If you're looking for holiday entertainment that's more tart than treacly, more snarky than sweet, prepare to make merry at Frank Theatre's "The Santaland Diaries"…This lively production, under the direction of Wendy Knox, has a wonderfully cartoon-like look, complete with Steve Rohde's recreation of Santaland and Kathy Kohl's gaudy elf costume, including curly-toed shoes. ..Joe Leary does a stellar job with the variety of characters that inhabit this play, embodying some particularly amusing Santas, over-wrought parents and freakish coworkers.” –StarTribune
