Breakdown

After a successful Broadway run last year, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL is seeking children for its 2013 production.

This classic holiday tale centers on a mischievous, bespectacled boy, Ralphie, who dreams of getting a
BB-gun for Christmas. In the weeks before the big holiday, Ralphie, his friends and his family get into all kinds of situations— including run-ins with a bully with “yellow eyes,” a tongue stuck to a flag pole, a bar of soap in the mouth, a garish leg lamp, a major award and a Chinese Christmas dinner. Based on the humorist Jean Shepherd’s novel “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash,” this is a tribute to the Original, Traditional, One-Hundred-Percent, Red-Blooded, Two-Fisted, All-American Christmas.


Seeking Ensemble Dancers who Sing (CHILDREN):

SCHWARTZ:
