Broadway's A CHRISTMAS STORY has announced that Pete and Lily, two bloodhounds rescued and trained by animal trainer William Berloni, will make their Broadway debuts as the rambunctious Bumpus Hounds, who infamously set out to torment Ralphie's Old Man and disrupt Christmas dinner.
A Christmas Story, The Musical will arrive on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre just in time for the 2012 holiday season.  The producers have announced that the new musical, based on the 1983 movie perennial, will play a November 5 – December 30 holiday engagement.  Opening night is Monday, November 19.  Tickets are now on sale at or
"Offstage, Pete and Lily are a sweet, well-mannered pair of bloodhounds," says Berloni.  "The two (who have a clear bond indicating that they may even be siblings) were discovered in Canada at Ontario Bloodhound Rescue.  I have since transported the pair to my farm in Connecticut where training has begun.  In October, they will move to Manhattan, where an apartment has been secured for them so they can explore NYC before starting rehearsals with the cast."
