About This Show

Based on humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoirs of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s, A Christmas Story follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB Gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out.” All your favorite moments of the film are brought to life on stage, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkus, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more. The play is directed by Chad Allen, with scenic design by Don Eller, costume design by Sherry Johnson, and lighting design by Ursula Bowden.
