A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story: the musical
Nine-year-old Ralphie Parker wants one thing for Christmas: an official Red Ryder range model carbine action BB gun. There’s only one problem: everyone else is convinced he’ll shoot his eye out. Undeterred, he begins his saga of convincing all the necessary players, from his sweet and protective mother, to his straightlaced teacher Miss Shields, all the way to Santa Claus himself. Ralphie’s vivid imagination conjures up several numbers, from “Ralphie to The Rescue,” in which he defeats every foe a young boy can think of, to tap routine performed by a gun moll-esque Miss Shields.
