Based on the memoirs of Jean Shepherd, the 1983 film A Christmas Story has become a modern holiday classic. This winter, live at The Rep, enjoy Ralphie’s misadventures as his family struggles to enjoy an All-American Christmas on the brink of World War II. Armed with an overactive imagination and the wide-eyed optimism of childhood, he creates fantastic schemes to guarantee that he will find a BB gun under the tree, which backfire with hysterical results. In the end, nothing can defeat the spirit of Christmas when you are surrounded by a family who loves you, warts and all. We invite you to join the cast and crew for a panel discussion about this production and more.
