A Christmas Story: The Musical Brings Classic Holiday Movie to Life on Walton Arts Center Stage
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, Oct. 22, 2019 – An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa and a triple-dog-dare – that’s really all you need to get in the holiday spirit when A Christmas Story: The Musical comes to Walton Arts Center Dec. 10-15.
Nominated for three 2013 Tony® Awards including Best Musical, the Associated Press calls A Christmas Story: The Musical “a joyous Christmas miracle,” while The New York Times writes “I was dazzled. You’d have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face.”
Set in 1940s Indiana, a young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. A few obstacles and many distractions stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish.
From the songwriting team behind the smash hit Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and the Academy Award-winning film La La Land, A Christmas Story: The Musical brings the classic 1983 movie to hilarious life on stage.
