The holidays have officially arrived in Boston! A Christmas Story begins performances at the Citi Wang Theatre on November 20. The musical based on the classic holiday movie will play through December 8.
A Christmas Story is the tale of Ralphie, a boy who has only one wish for Christmas: a Red Ryder BB gun. As Ralphie tries to make his Christmas dream come true, he encounters a cranky department store Santa, a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole, pink bunny pajamas and a kooky leg lamp.
The show stars Dan Lauria as Jean Shepherd, John Bolton as Old Man, Erin Dilly as Mother, Jake Lucas as Ralphie and Caroline O’Connor as Miss Shields.
A Christmas Story features a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, with a book by Joseph Robinette. The production has scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Elizabeth Hope Clancy and lighting design by Howell Binkley. The musical is directed by John Rando.
