SHN A Christmas Story
A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Air Rifle (“You’ll shoot your eye out kid!”). An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. Chock-full of delightful songs and splashy production numbers, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL has proudly taken its place as a perennial holiday classic for the whole family.
This new Broadway musical based on the classic 1983 movie, which itself was based on stories by legendary radio humorist Jean Shepherd, features a festive and nostalgic holiday themed score by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul and a faithful yet inventive book by Joseph Robinette.
