A Christmas Story is a full cast theatrical production features actors in costumes performing the radio scripts accompanied by live music and the sound effects table! The audience plays a role as well following the visual cues to applaud, gasp, mumble and cheer to complete the audio landscape! Sit back and relax and let your ears paint the richest pictures.

The story follows Ralphie, a young boy, who wants nothing more than the Official Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle for Christmas but his mom is sure he’ll shoot his eye out! This delightful adaptation of the Jean Sheppard book celebrates the common memories we all share of the excitement, anxiety and anticipation leading up to that most magical time of every child’s life, Christmas Morning!
