A Christmas Story showing at The Circuit Playhouse
By Lisa Lynch
This classic Christmas movie comes to life on stage this holiday season! This Christmas Ralphie Parker is consumed with the desire for a Red Ryder BB rifle. A deceptively dangerous playground dare, an unforgettable visit with a department store Santa, and a bizarre, gaudy radio contest prize are among the vivid childhood memories told with warmth and a sleigh-load of laughs. Bring the whole family for a nostalgic, heartwarming, kid’s-eye-view of the holidays.
Directed by Cecelia Wingate (Little Shop of Horrors at Theatre Memphis and Harrell Theatre), A Christmas Story stars Steve Swift (Sister Myotis) as Ralph, Sam Weakley, Jaclyn Suffle, Gail Black, Janie Peacock, Brooks Eikner, Ryan Patterson, Harli Kurdelmeyer, Evan Walsh, Curtis Scott, and newcomer, 11-year-old Jeremy Beloate as young Ralphie.
