BroadHollow Theatre Co. Presents “A Christmas Story the Musical”
December 22, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - January 6, 2019 @ 11:00 pm| 30$
Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie’s friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as “Ralphie to the Rescue!”, “A Major Award”, “Sticky Situation”, “Up on Santa’s Lap”, “Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana”, and the inevitable “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!”.
