Theatre Harrisburg takes its slogan "Where Community Takes Center Stage!" very seriously and recognizes that current economic conditions make it difficult for many of their friends and neighbors in Central Pennsylvania to enjoy live theatre. That's why ticket prices for A CHHRISTMAS STORY have been kept very low. In fact, every seat in the house for all three opening weekend performances (November 7 - 9) is only $20. Beyond that, tickets are still a very reasonable $25. Tickets may be purchased by visiting or calling the Whitaker Center box office at (717) 214-ARTS.
A CHRISTMAS STORY stars Ed Toyer as Ralph, Alex Winnick as Ralphie, Ann Ariano as Mother, Jeff Rensch as The Old Man, Seth Winnick as Randy, Jacqueline Goodwin as Miss Shields, Peter Ariano as Flick, Connor Coyle as Scut Farkas, Logan Uhrich as Schwartz, Kassidy Kramer as Helen and Julia Toyer as Esther. Also in the ensemble are Anthony Ariano, Nicoletta Ariano, Kaylee Kramer and William O'Donnell. The entire production is under the direction of Dan Burke.
