From the songwriting team behind the smash-hit Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and the Academy Award-winning film La La Land, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL, brings the classic 1983 movie to hilarious life on stage!
Following a successful Broadway run garnering three 2013 Tony Award nominations including BEST MUSICAL, BEST BOOK OF A MUSICAL (Joseph Robinette) and BEST ORIGINAL SCORE (Benj Pasek and Justin Paul), along with six Drama Desk nominations, and two Outer Critics Circle nominations, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL is set to take historic downtown Sanford by storm!
Based on the perennial holiday movie favorite, 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 Model 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.
Hailed by The Associated Press as “a joyous Christmas miracle,” The New York Times writes “I was dazzled. You’d have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face.” A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL is a triple-dog-dare of a good time and it is sure to warm your heart this holiday season!
