A CHRISTMAS STORY | Watch out, kid!

You’ll shoot your eye out!

The modern holiday film classic concerning Ralphie Parker’s quest for a Red Ryder B-B gun, becomes a live theatrical experience for the whole family. All the elements from the beloved film are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin and more.
