A Christmas Story: The Musical

A Christmas Story: The Musical

Palo Alto Players continues its 2019-20 season with A Christmas Story, The Musical, the 2013 Tony-nominated musical based on the 1983 beloved film that follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams. Like the film, A Christmas Story, The Musical, is set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, and chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker’s desperate quest to ensure that his most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree, an official Red Ryder BB gun (“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”). An infamous lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. A Christmas Story, The Musical features funny and heartfelt songs by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, the songwriting team behind the Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and the Academy Award-winning film La La Land. New York magazine called it "A true gift! A sparkling adaptation with a surefire charmer of a score” and The New York Times said, “You’d have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face!”
