About The Show

A Christmas Story, The Musical chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle (“You’ll shoot your eye out kid!”).  An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. Chock-full of delightful songs and splashy production numbers, A Christmas Story, The Musical, has proudly taken its place as a perennial holiday classic for the whole family.

There were MANY things that I loved about this musical but I’ll limit it to my top 3.

1.) They still kept the hilarious classic scenes from the movie that die-hard fans can recite backward and forwards.

2.) There were new musical numbers that were really funny (the leg lamp number) and the tap dancing number did a great job of showcasing the skills of the ultra-talented kids in the cast.

3.) They use real hounds in the play which makes their scenes even more comical.
