A Christmas Story | Nov. 29 - Dec. 23, 2012
“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.
