Christmas is coming in Hohman, Indiana, and all 9-year-old Ralphie wants for Christmas is the legendary official Red Ryder 200-Shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle with a compass and this thing which tells time built right in the stock. The problem is that every adult in his life, beginning with his mother, is afraid he'll shoot his eye out with it. Ralphie's attempts to persuade Santa and his parents that he should get the Red Ryder gun form the basis fr this heartwarming and nostalgic look at growing up in a small town in America in 1938. 

Directed with finesse by Artistic Director Greg Hinojosa, everyone’s favorite holiday movie makes its way off the big screen and onto the big stage this holiday season with Woodlawn Theatre’s production of ‘A Christmas Story’.
