(Mableton, GA) Come out and celebrate the season with a triple-dog dare, an iconic leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas and the coveted Red Ryder BB gun as The Theatre Project presents A Christmas Story: TheMusical November 10 -12 at the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre.
A Christmas Story: The Musical is set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana. The musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as "Ralphie to the Rescue!", "A Major Award," "Sticky Situation," "Up on Santa's Lap," "Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana" and the inevitable "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!" A Christmas Story: The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.
The Theatre Project’s Rachel Rudd will be directing a cast of more than 30 local youth actors ages 9-18. When asked what the live stage show could bring that an audience might not get from watching the beloved movie, Rudd explained, “Music, music and more music. I think every story is better with music and audiences will love seeing this beloved story live on stage with our awesome performers!” The musical reins for this production have been given to Harris Wheeler as the Musical Director and will employ a live orchestra.
