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.

This new Broadway musical is based on the classic 1983 movie A Christmas Story, which itself was based on stories by legendary radio humorist Jean Shepherd. The musical features an all-new score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a book by Joseph Robinette.


  • Peter Billingsley, the actor who starred as the nine-year-old bespectacled hero “Ralphie” in the original 1983 film, was one of the musical’s Broadway producers.
  • The “Red Ryder” in the name of Ralphie’s hoped-for Christmas gift was a popular character from the radio and comic books in the 1940s, akin to popular western heroes like the Lone Ranger.
