Drenched in nostalgia, and full of music and excellent choreographies, this live TV musical pivots around 1940s Indiana, a kid's warm desire to get the best present, and his adventures leading up to Christmas Eve. More than anything in the world, nine-year-old Ralphie Parker wants to get a powerful Red Ryder Lever Action BB gun for Christmas. Instead, Mother Parker gives him a warning, and to get his hands on the ultimate gift of the holiday season, Ralphie embarks on a mission to talk everyone into seeing things his way. Of course, all the vignettes, the lines, and the gags of the classic original, A Christmas Story (1983), show up, including the Old Man's leg-shaped lamp, the neighbourhood bullies, the flagpole incident, and the little dirty word. Will Ralphie convince adults that he will not shoot his eye out?Written by
