Tickets Now On Sale for A CHRISTMAS STORY at Hanover Theatre

Tickets Now On Sale for A CHRISTMAS STORY at Hanover Theatre From the songwriting team behind the Tony Award-winning musical "Dear Evan Hansen" and the Academy Award-winning film "La La Land", A Christmas Story, The Musical opens its national tour at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts and runs Thursday, November 9 through Sunday, November 12. Tickets are now on sale for the Broadway show based on the classic 1983 film.

A Christmas Story, The Musical chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle ("You'll shoot your eye out kid!"). 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. Chock-full of delightful songs and splashy production numbers, A Christmas Story, The Musical, has proudly taken its place as a perennial holiday classic for the whole family.

A Christmas Story, The Musical premiered on Broadway in 2012 and was hailed by The Associated Press as "a joyous Christmas miracle." The New York Times wrote, "I was dazzled. You'd have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face."

The musical was nominated for three Tony Awards including Best New Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.

A Christmas Story, The Musical features a festive and nostalgic holiday themed score by composer/lyricist team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and a book by Joseph Robinette, based on the writings of radio humorist Jean Shepherd. The tour features direction by Matt Lenz, and choreography by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle, reset for the tour by Jason Sparks. A Christmas Story, The Musical features scenic design by Mike Carnahan, costume design by Lisa Zinni and lighting design by Charlie Morrison.

A Christmas Story, The Musical is produced by Big League Productions, Inc. led by President and Executive Producer Daniel Sher. Big League is celebrating its 27th season of producing, managing and booking Broadway musicals and special attractions for touring throughout North America and the world. For more information visit
