A Christmas Story” remains one of the more enchanting ways to be transported to a world beyond our own. Yet it also serves to remind us how lucky we are to live a culturally rich life…and Philip Grecian’s thoughtful stage adaptation preserves the old…references.”

 

 

A Christmas Story is based on humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s and 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, at Higbee’s Department Store, receiving a consistent response:”You’ll shoot your eye out”!

All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, 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.

A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday perennial.
