A Christmas Story, the Musical

A Christmas Story, the Musical

Presented by Creative Connections Arts Academy at Creative Connections Arts Academy

Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Homan, 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!”

A Christmas Story, the Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t. The students at Creative Connections Arts Academy, a public charter school with an emphasis on performing arts, have been working throughout their summer break and into the beginning of the school year to perfect their performances.
