A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story is a full-length holiday comedy by Philip Grecian. Based on the movie of the same name. Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest of the 1940s follows young 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 triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; outrageous pink bunny pajamas; the infamous leg lamp; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more.
