If you’re looking for a fun time this holiday season, have we got the ticket for you: The Flat Rock Playhouse has a very special Christmas gift sure to delight fans both young and old, as they’re presenting, live on stage, the beloved seasonal favorite: “A Christmas Story”!
You’ve seen it on the little screen (and maybe even the big) – now take the opportunity to see it live and laugh along at the hapless, little Ralphie Parker as his memories of that fateful Christmas unfold for your delight.
Based on the classic, 1983 film and adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian, “A Christmas Story” is a quirky, coming-of-age story set in the 1940’s: 9 year old Ralphie Paker has his eye set on a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas but is continually told that said eye will get shot out, should he receive it. Even the Macy’s Santa gives the thumbs down! Despite this and other hilarious setbacks, Ralphie refuses to give up.
Surrounding this central story are a variety of subplots both wacky and reminiscent of more innocent times: what happens when you stick your tongue to freezing metal? How do you deal with a bully? How can you convince your mom that you’re responsible?
The stage production of “A Christmas Story,” like the film, delivers a favorite, holiday tale that is at once endearing, heartwarming, and gut-bustingly hilarious. It’s the perfect gift for you and your loved ones.
