You've seen the classic movie on TV every holiday season for years, now see the musical version that was nominated for three Tony Awards in its 2013 Broadway run. 9 year-old Ralphie has his heart set on the holy grail of Christmas gifts in the 1940s: an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle. But first, he'll have to navigate a maniacal department store Santa, the infamous leg lamp, a triple-dog-dare to lick a frozen flagpole, the terrifying bully Farkus, the bunny suit and much more. Featuring everything from gentle ballads to show-stopping ensemble numbers like "Ralphie to the Rescue!" "A Major Award," "Sticky Situation" and "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!", "A Christmas Story: The Musical" lends a magnificent score to the famous, heartfelt holiday tale at San Francisco Playhouse.
