A Christmas Story
By Philip Grecian
Based on the motion picture by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown,
and Bob Clark
Directed by Resident Director Matt McNabb
Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s 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. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!"
All the dryly-funny elements from the beloved motion picture by Jean Shepherd are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment licking a frozen lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios, and more. We hope you’ll join us to remember the joy of being a kid at Christmastime again, because sometimes Christmas is about getting what you really want.
