A Christmas Story

November 7 - November 25, 2012

by Philip Grecian
based on the motion picture A Christmas Story © 1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark; and on the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd
directed by Drew Fracher

In this Christmas adventure like no other, young Ralphie Parker’s fervent campaign for a Red Ryder BB Gun unfolds despite a chorus of worries (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”) and amid seasonal shenanigans involving a leg lamp, a bunny suit and a tongue stuck to a frozen flagpole. Relive a family tradition or start one anew with this stage adaption of the beloved film, inspired by Jean Shepherd’s classic American stories about Christmas—and growing up—in the Midwest.


Recommended for ages 7 and up
