Back by popular demand, Tacoma Little Theatre presents A Christmas Story, adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian. This holiday classic will be directed by Jennifer York.

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940's follows nine-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher, and even Santa Claus himself. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved movie are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a leg lamp; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more.

Tacoma Little Theatre's production of A Christmas Story features Blake R. York as Ralph Parker, Heidi Walworth-Horn as Mother, Andrew Fry as The Old Man, Stephanie Kroschel as Miss Shields, Tyler Weston as Ralphie Parker, Gavin Weston as Randy Parker, Jack Burns as Flick, Fletcher Kelley as Schwartz, Maggie Savage as Esther Jane Alberry, Maya Harris as Helen Weathers, and Nigel Kelley as Scut Farkas, with Gavin Fischer, Natalie Jolly, Brynn Livengood, and Zuzu Zimmer as Ensemble.
