Thirty years ago a pleasant, family film appeared on movie screens across America.  There was very little pre-screen publicity because this rather low budget film was not considered a major production.   However, the film surprised everyone by becoming an instant hit filled with appealing family comic situations. Its popularity has caused “A Christmas Story” to become a holiday TV classic shown numerous times during the Christmas season.   The film received the additional distinction of being placed on the Library of Congress National Film Register.  The stage play of “A Christmas Story,” based on the film, has also enjoyed success with both professional and amateur acting companies.  Recently the musical version opened on Broadway to sold out audiences and critical acclaim.
  The plot of “A Christmas Story” deals with the adventures and misadventures of an Indiana family in the late 1930s.  The story is presented through the eyes of Ralphie, a ten year old boy, whose major desire in life is getting a Red Ryder 200 shot BB gun for Christmas.  Ralphie is thwarted at almost every turn by the ominous warning of “Ralphie, you’ll shoot your eye out!”   However, he has a rich fantasy life in which he saves his family, his friends, almost his country with his Red Ryder BB gun.The play has many comic situations and also presents genuine nostalgic moments as Ralphie, his friends and family remind us of simpler times, of childhood memories, and of the true meaning of Christmas.

Opening this Fall: “A Christmas Story”

This fall, Winters Theatre Company will present Jean Shepherd’s “A Christmas Story,” a comedy adapted by Philip Grecian.

christmas story

Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest of the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Goldblatt’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out.” All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father wining a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more.

 

Tickets for the Gala Opening on Friday, November 22nd, 7:30 p.m. are $15. For all other performances, Fridays and Saturdays, November 23rd – December 6th, 8 p.m. and Sundays, December 1st and 8th, 2 p.m., tickets are $10 general and $6 for seniors and students.
