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.
Bring the whole family to enjoy this very special Christmas celebration that everyone knows and loves! With the perfect mix of gentle humor,
pathos and holiday cheer, "A Christmas Story" will have you laughing into the season.

"DON'T LET THE HOLIDAYS PASS BY WITHOUT A SUPERB 'CHRISTMAS STORY'"
By Kimberly Nicoletti
November 25, 2011
"What is a prepubescent boy to do when his life revolves around the one thing he desperately wants for Christmas - a Red Ryder BB gun - but everyone
around him, including his parents, teacher, peers and EVEN Santa - dismiss his request with the obvious: "You'll shoot your eye out."
