The Classic Christmas Movie Comes to Life on Stage – as a Musical!

Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun.

A Christmas Story: The Musical is presented through special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing.  www.dramaticpublishing.com
