The award-winning Confetti Stage was incorporated in 2004 and produced its inaugural production, ‘night, Mother, by Marsha Norman in January 2005. Since then, the company has successfully brought to the stage over 40 productions. Confetti Stage has performed in several Capital Region communities and as far away as Carmel, IN. Confetti Stage prides itself on bringing quality performances to its community and allowing artists to expand their talents while collaborating to bring about a final product. Confetti Stage offers a full season of quality community theatre every year, as well as the area’s only 100% local Short Play Festival. Confetti Stage is a proud member of the American Association of Community Theatre and the Theatre Association of New York State.
This December 10th, Confetti Stage will present David Sedaris’ curdled classic, The Santaland Diaries. For everyone who gets nauseous at the mere mention of “Dominic the Donkey”, “Black Friday Door-busters”, and “That one must-have toy of the season!”, here is the Christmas show that understands, and provides an antidote to Holiday Overload.
The Santaland Diaries is a wicked comedy detailing one man’s time working as an elf in the very special purgatory that is, was, and will always be Macy’s Santaland. Adapted from real-life experiences, the show’s hero tells a story of horrible children, worse parents, long hours of cheek-breaking smiles, dashed attempts at love and fortune, and then, possibly, a moment of surprising revelation.
This is a fabulously dark comedy, a true joy to perform, and the one holiday show this season that doesn’t need an insulin chaser.
