As if there is anyone that isn't familiar with the iconic Christmas tale, A Christmas Story follows the story
of Ralphie, a child whose only wish is to get a Red Ryder BB Gun as a gift for Christmas, and his attempts to get it in 1940's
Indiana. As Christmas dawns ever closer Ralphie goes through a plethora of genius attempts to sway, persuade, and connive
his way into getting the gift that seems to constantly elude him. But Ralphie is only the centerpiece in a journey that includes
a wide cast of characters that live on as classic archetypes in the Christmas spectrum of film and television. So even if
you think you've seen everything that this specific adventure has to offer then you owe it to yourself to check out this new
musical adaptation that breathes new life into the always wonderful Christmas tale.
the musical had a brief run in Kansas City, Missouri back in 2009, the production underwent it's fair share of rewrites before
it moved onto Seattle, Washington for another brief run in 2010. From there the show went on a national tour that took it
from coast to coast, finally making it to the big leagues in 2012 when it hit the Broadway scene in style. The musical was
a smash hit on Broadway, being nominated for two Outer Critics Circle Awards, six Drama Desk Awards, as well as three Tony
Awards. Sadly the show ended up only being nominated, but it has grown into a national spectacle that has people from all
over lining up to see it!
A Christmas Story Trivia
There's no doubt that when word was getting out that
there was to be a musical stage adaptation of the classic A Christmas Story that there would be a cavalcade of people lining
up to be involved, but who knew that one of the original cast members of the film would be involved in the musical as well.
Peter Billingsly, most well known to the public as Ralphie, the lovable protagonist of the classic Christmas tale, is actually
one of the producer's of this highly anticipated and well received show! It makes sense that someone involved in the original
production would be involved somehow, a way to carry over authenticity and feelings from the film to the stage, but few would
have guessed that such a pivotal character and actor would be the one to get involved! A smart move and one that is likely
to draw even more interest in the production, Peter Billingsly's involvement shows that this is an authentic recreation of
the classic that will live on for years to come.
Critics and audiences all over are raving
over the spectacular adaptation that has them holding their sides with laughter while simultaneously grinning from ear to
ear throughout the show. While millions of people are already familiar with the classic tale and the lovable characters scattered
throughout, nothing can properly prepare you for the hilarity and great feelings that are instilled within the audience for
each and every performance. It doesn't matter if you've seen A Christmas Story a thousand times, because when you take your
seat at the theatre you'll feel like this is the first time that you've been acquainted with the cast and characters. So get
ready to fall in love with the story all over again when you head out to bare witness to the musical mastery that's in store
