A Christmas Story: The Musical

A Christmas Story: The Musical is based on the 1983 film of the same name, which in turn was inspired by Jean Shepherd’s semi-autobiographical short stories.


The musical follows young Ralphie Parker in his quest to receive a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle for Christmas.

Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the story captures the holiday season through the eyes of Ralphie and his family, including his quirky parents and his younger brother, Randy.

The musical weaves together Ralphie’s vivid imagination, his encounters at school, and his family’s preparations for Christmas into a heartwarming tale of childhood desire, resilience, and the spirit of the season, highlighted by a score that blends humor and warmth.
