"A Christmas Story" the Musical

Christmas Story

This classic holiday tale centers on a mischievous, bespectacled boy, Ralphie, who dreams
of getting a BB-gun for Christmas. In the weeks before the big holiday, Ralphie, his friends
and his family get into all kinds of situations — including run-ins with a bully with
"yellow eyes," a tongue stuck to a flag pole, a bar of soap in the mouth, a garish leg lamp, a
major award and a Chinese Christmas dinner. Directed by James Mierkey, Rated PG.

Friday, December 13 - 7:00 P.M.
Saturday, December 14 - 7:00 P.M.
