Book by Joseph Robinette. Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Based on the motion picture ‘A Christmas Story,’ distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and upon ‘In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash,’ written by Jean Shepherd. Produced with permission of Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Dalfie Entertainment.
Follow 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with “You’ll shoot your eye out!,” Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, all the iconic scenes from the movie are here! A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t.
