The Merlin Players Professional Theatre is back with their production of "Present Laughter."  A hilarious show written by Noel Coward starring Faribault native Michael Lambert.

Lambert and Samuel Temple, also from Faribault joined Artistic Director Julianna Skluzacek on today's KDHL A.M. Minnesota program.  They are excited to be performing again.

Both said it's what an actor in live theatre thrives on.  The laughs, sometimes when you don't expect them give you a rush of adrenaline that's hard to explain.

Skluzacek told AM Minnesota listeners the show fell completely into place during the Wednesday night dress rehersal.

Lambert and Temple echoed those thoughts emphasizing they are ready to go.

You can purchase tickets on the Merlin Players website.  While there you might want to purchase season tickets for their 27th season of shows next year.

Tickets may also be purchased at the Paradise Center for the Arts box office. Open an hour before each performance.

The Merlin Players veterans agreed theatre lovers are ready to break out of their forced homebound pandemic experiences to simply enjoy some belly laughs.

The cast includes a who's who of veteran Merlin Players all-stars.

Featuring Michael Lambert with Patrick Braucher, Susan Dunhaupt, Faith Jameson, Tania Legvold, Marcia Morris-Beck, Dean Plant, Kim Schaufenbuel, Sam Temple,
Larry Tolle, Stephanie Weiss.

The show is sponsored by Reliance Bank of Faribault.

In an age of flipping the script on societal norms, many of these actresses are using their voices and platforms to be advocates for those who are otherwise unheard.

Actors don't want to be left out either.
