About the Show Based on the humorous writings of author Jean Shepherd and the motion picture of the same name, A Christmas Story follows the wintry exploits of young Ralphie Parker, who spends most of his time dodging a bully and dreaming of his ideal Christmas gift: a genuine Red Ryder BB Gun. Frequently at odds with his cranky dad but comforted by his doting mother, Ralphie struggles to make it to Christmas Day with his glasses and his hopes intact.
It’s the perfect holiday show for the entire family to enjoy together!
