"FOUR STARS....A Christmas Story is a great gift! A chance to see it done right...Much to enjoy," "From gifted child performers to solid and artful direction"
--Frances Nicholson, Pasadena Star-News

Experience the heartwarming story of Ralphie and his Midwestern family at Christmastime. The Parker family gets its Christmas tree. Ralphie’s dad, The Old Man, wins a very special prize in a contest. Ralphie is pursued by a girl in his class. Ralphie is pursued by the class bully. And, most famously, Ralphie sets off on a campaign to acquire his most-desired Christmas present, a Red Ryder BB air rifle, only to be warned repeatedly, “You’ll put your eye out, kid.”


"Deeply entertaining with abundant humor, all presented by a clearly talented cast under the exquisitie direction of Christian Lebano"
---Ron Irwin, LA Post-Examiner
