A CHRISTMAS STORY

OVERVIEW

Ages 8-18

Our 2018 MainStage Musical will be "A Christmas Story"! This story is arguably one of America’s favorite holiday films and now a Broadway Musical. Over the years, this modest little story has grown into a Yuletide perennial.

In the late 1960s, “A Christmas Story” director Bob Clark was driving to a date’s house when he happened upon a broadcast of radio personality and writer Jean Shepherd’s recollections of growing up in Indiana in the late ’30s and early ’40s. Clark wound up driving around the block for almost an hour, glued to the radio until the program was over.

Kick off your Holiday Season by helping bring to life a small town in Indiana..
