Ralphie Parker wants only one thing for Christmas: an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Actions 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. A Christmas Story, The Musical is the hilarious account of Ralphie’s desperate quest to ensure that this most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree this Christmas.
A Christmas Story is directed by Tony Award-winner John Rando and choreographed by Warren Carlyle. This new musical based on the classic 1983 movie, which itself was based on stories by legendary radio humorist Jean Shepherd, features funny and heartfelt songs by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul and a faithful yet inventive book by Joseph Robinette.
Dan Lauria will once again lead the cast of the Tony Award-nominated musical. He will be joined by three other returning cast members from the Broadway production: John Bolton as The Old Man, Erin Dilly as Mother and Caroline O'Connor as Miss Shields. Ralphie will be played by Jake Lukas, who has appeared on Broadway in "Newsies." The show made its debut last Christmas on Broadway.
Returning to New York, A Christmas Story, The Musical captures holiday wonder with such deliciously wicked wit that it is sure to delight children and grown-ups alike!
