A beloved region favorite, A Christmas Story, The Musical, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas.
Set in the 1940's in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, it follows 9-year old Ralphie and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts--an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here. Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit and the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit and the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others.
A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.
