A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL, brings the classic 1983 movie to hilarious life on stage. A Christmas Story comes from U of M alumni songwriting team, Pasek and Paul (Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and the Academy Award-winning film La La Land and The Greatest Showman).
Directed by Dan Cooney
This show runs from November 25 – December 18, 2022, on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Set in 1940s Indiana, a young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish.
Nominated for three 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical, the Associated Press calls A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL “a joyous Christmas miracle,” while The New York Times writes “I was dazzled. You’d have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face.”
