“A Christmas Story”
Elizabethtown, KY United States
A Christmas Story
By Philip Grecian, based on the film by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, performed by the Hardin County Playhouse at The Historic State Theater on December 8-10 and December 14-17, 2017.
Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940’s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including 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; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is a theatrical holiday classic.
Performances on Friday & Saturday at 7:00 p.m., second Thursday at 7:00 p.m., Sunday at 3:00 p.m.
