Theatre Production: A Christmas Story: The Musical

Nine-year-old Ralphie Parker wants one thing for Christmas, and one thing only: An Official Red Ryder Range Model Carbine Action BB Gun. There’s only one problem: everyone else is convinced he’ll shoot his eye out! Undeterred, he begins his saga of convincing all the necessary players, including Santa Claus himself, that he needs that gun.

Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Homan, 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.  Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun.


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; the Christmas dinner.


The outstanding score is by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Their musical Dear Evan Hanson won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Musical.  They also wrote the songs for the movies La La Land and The Greatest Showman.
