Civic Theatre has secured exclusive West Michigan rights for this seasonal delight just in time for the Holidays. Ralphie Parker only wants one thing for Christmas: an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200 shot Range Model Air Rifle (with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time) and he is on a quest to make sure this gift ends up under his Christmas tree.
It’s December 1940, in Northwest Indiana, a time of nostalgia, humor tempered by coal and steel dust. Based on Jean Shepherd’s semi-autobiographic short story collection In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash and the 1983 film, A Christmas Story, The Musical is a musical romp that will leave audiences smiling all the way home.
A Christmas Story, The Musical is recommended for children and adults, ages eight and older. For an even greater theatre experience, read the Jean Sheppard short story and follow that with a movie viewing!.
