Ralphie Parker wants only one thing for Christmas: an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle.

A Christmas Story, The Musical


A Christmas Story The Musical invites you into the Indiana home of Ralphie Parker, an 11-year-old kid who is desperate to win the most coveted holiday prize: an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. A kooky leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a cranky department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the obstacles that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas dream.
