A Christmas Story
November 6 - November 22, 2009
Humorist Jean Shepherd's In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash is a memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940's, starring 9-year-old Ralphie in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. All the elements from the beloved motion picture by the same name are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace, school bully Scut Farkas, the boys experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost, the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin, Ralphie's father's leg lamp, Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday classic.
