A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story
–Theatre G
We double-DOG-dare you to see it!

Adult Ralph Parker recounts the Christmas he celebrated as a nine year old living with his parents and younger brother in northern Indiana. This particular Christmas was special: his contest-obsessed father won a prize and the never-ending battle with the house furnace. Ralphie faced challenges of his own: clashing with the town bullies and discovering a new relationship with soap. But most memorable was what he wanted more than anything for Christmas: an official Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle, aka a BB gun. Retold with a touch of childhood fantasy, these Christmas stories remind us all why we love the holidays.

By Philip Grecian. Based on the motion picture 'A Christmas Story' c. 1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown, and Bob Clark; and on the book 'In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash' by Jean Shepherd.
