The Vanity Theater in Crawfordsville, Indiana was the venue for The Santa Diaries in 2018. Here's what the local paper, Journal Review, had to say. "The play is filled with songs, inept dancing, struggling acting efforts, volunteer firemen turned set builders and the petty dramatics that seem to be a part of all human life. Four story lines swirl toward a climax through the filter of a nightmare. 

That this is a play about a small town community theater doing a Christmas play makes it feel that it is about us. "

Playwrights Laura Ambler and Mala Burt were presented with a proclamation by Crawfordsville mayor, Todd D. Barton,  making November 30 - December 2, 2018 as The Santa Diaries - Community Theater Weekend.
