You’ll shoot your eye out, kid. How many times do you think you’ve enjoyed the film? Now it’s your turn to see it come to life on stage in a fresh new way — with all your favorite comic moments! Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”). All the elements from the beloved movie are here, including that temperamental furnace, the Scut Farkus affair, the “double dog dare ya” with the flag pole at school, the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin, Ralphie’s dad’s “major award” (a.k.a. the leg lamp), and much more — all live on stage at the intimate Victoria Theatre.
