Singing Children and Leg-Lamp Kicklines! A Christmas Story Comes to Paper Mill Playhouse

Elena Shaddow and Chris Hoch star in Benj Pasek and Justin Paul's Tony-nominated musical in Milburn, New Jersey

New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse is counting down to the holiday season with its new production of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul's Tony-nominated musical A Christmas Story. Inspired by the classic film of the same title — which tells the story of a young boy, his wacky family, and his desire to receive a Red Ryder BB gun as a present — the stage version captures the great onscreen moments and sets them to song. Meet the company, headed by Broadway vets Elena Shaddow and Chris Hoch, and go into the rehearsal room to see the tuneful kids and high-kicking leg lamps before they take the stage.
