This holiday season the Chicago Theatre will be presenting A Christmas Story, The Musical! One of the most popular Christmas movies of all time will hit the stage during two weeks in December for the first time ever. The original film was written by Jean Shepard and was a semi-autobiographical tale of his childhood growing up in Hammond, Indiana post depression era. The musical is being produced by the film’s original “Ralphie” character which was played by Peter Billingsley. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul have been brought on to put together the score for the musical. The show promises to bring back all of your favorite moments from the film such as the famous leg lamp, the pink bunny footie pajamas, the crazy department store Santa, the overly protective winter coat, and the double dog dare! Gold Coast Tickets has great A Christmas Story tickets for weekend shows in December.
Anyone growing up since the 1980s should be able to appreciate what a treat A Christmas Story, The Musical! can be for the whole family.
