    Beloved Region Favorite, “AChristmas 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, the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit, the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others.

    A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dinension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t.

    Book by Joseph Robinette. Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Based on the motiion picture A Christmas Story distrubuted by Warner Bros., written by Jean Sheperd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and upon In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash written by Jean Shepherd, Produced with permission of Warner Bro.
