A Christmas Story, the musical on stage in Charles Town
The Bennett Agency presents A Christmas story, the musical Dec. 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14 at the Old Opera House in Charles Town.
This musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts-an Official Red Ryder air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie’s friend getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, in his snowsuit; the bullies; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. A Christmas Story, the Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will stand on its own for those who haven’t.
Musical Director Bobb Robinson, Choreographer Christine Galante and Director Steven Brewer have assembled a wonderful cast of both seasoned and new performers to bring this holiday classic to the Old Opera House stage, including Caroline Brewer, Charles Casey, Harrison Casey, Katie Cisar, Ed Conn, Davis Cummings, Cavin Davis, Cannon Evans, Rob Evans, Aiden Farabaugh, Rene Farabaugh, Jason Garrard, Jen George, Micheal George, Ryan George, Lee Hebb, Will Heyser, Rachel Jackson, Jenna Kennedy, Joseph Kennedy, Katie Kennedy, Amelia Marino, Hagen McGowan, Ethan Mills, Kelly Pannill, Charlie Perkins, Irina R.
