A Christmas Story
By Philip Grecian, Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark
Directed by Dave Tim
Community Players' Winter production: A Christmas Story
The play is based on Jean Shepherd’s classic holiday movie about nine-year-old Ralphie Parker, whose Christmas wish is for a Red Ryder BB gun. Ralphie pleads his case before his parents, his teacher, and even Santa Claus himself at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response? “You’ll shoot your eye out!”
All the elements from the beloved motion picture are included: 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; the iconic leg lamp; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios; and more.
