Why See A Christmas Story?
Christmas is a time of great expectations, especially for a child. For Ralphie Parker, that particular great expectation is a genuine Red Ryder 200 Shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. No self-respecting cowboy would be without one. Unfortunately, his mom, teacher and even the Santa Claus toiling away at Higbee's Department Store share the same reaction to his Christmas wish: "You'll shoot your eye out!"
As in the 1983 movie, the play is narrated by the adult Ralph Parker who weaves together tales from his family, school and a visit with Santa. All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; the school bully; a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring and much more.
