America's #1 Christmas movie comes to life on stage as a hilarious holiday musical. Based on the writings of radio humorist Jean Shepherd, A Christmas Story, The Musical! chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way towards the holiday gift of his dreams - a Red Ryder Action Air Rifle BB Gun - "You'll shoot your eye out kid!" A kooky leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a double-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between young Ralphie and his Christmas wish.

Produced by the film's original Ralphie, Peter Billingsley, A Christmas Story, The Musical! features a bright holiday score by composer/ lyricist team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, a hilarious book by Joseph Robinette.
