There’s only one Classic Holiday Movie that can claim the phrase, “It’s a major award!” Now that movie comes to life on the stage of the Woodstock Playhouse as one of the finest musicals around this holiday season: ‘A Christmas Story’, the musical!
From the red-hot tap number, ‘You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out’ featuring Miss Shields, to the unforgettable rousing number ‘Ralphie to the Rescue’, all of the outrageous adventures of Ralphie and the Parker Family will bring the treasured gift of laughter to you and your family.
Each scene from the movie comes alive before your eyes, including the moment Flick’s tongue gets frozen to the flagpole, Ralphie saves everyone from the villains, and that golden moment when he helps his old man change the tire; and that’s just the beginning!
The comic timing and voices of the professional leads will satisfy beyond compare when teamed with rising youth talent trained at the Woodstock Playhouse’s official Conservatory for the Arts, all under the direction of Randy Conti.
For laughter and a holiday event that is about family and love – the real holiday tradition, ‘A Christmas Story’ is your best bet. Whether for the whole family or a night out with a friend or spouse, it’ll tickle your funny bone and touch your heart.
Performances are December 9th thru the 11th; Friday & Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. with live pit orchestra under the direction of Bobby Tomasulo, professional leads and top-notch rising youth talent. Tickets are $32, $36 & $40 and are available at the door, online at www.WoodstockPlayhouse.org or by phone at 845-679-6900.
