A Christmas Story at Shenanarts


Event Details
A Christmas Story
December 3-5 and 10-12, 2021
Directed by Anne Taetzsch Fitzgerald
Produced by Matt Parrish, Rebekah Bradley Ray, and Alexis Wagner
Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out!” All the elements from the beloved motion picture 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; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday perennial.
Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story, © 1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark; and on the book, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd. Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
