A Christmas Story, The Musical is the hilarious account of one boy's desperate quest to ensure that the one thing he want most in the world ends up under his tree this Christmas: an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. Based on the beloved 1983 holiday movie, this delightful musical comedy takes a nostalgic look back at the 1940s-era childhood holiday memories of one Ralphie Parker. Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years) leads a cast that also features three other returning cast members from the 2012 Broadway debut, as well as funny and heartfelt songs by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, with a faithful yet inventive book by Joseph Robinette. Young and old alike will delight in watching Ralphie's wacky family muddle through the Yuletide with heart, humor -- and one incredibly tacky leg lamp.
