Christmas Classic

Dec 05, 2014 11:06AM ● Published by Dia

You’ve watched the 1983 cult classic so many times that your holiday gatherings are peppered with Ralphie’s best quotes. And you may have included an official Red Ryder, carbine action, 200-shot range model air rifle on your wish list one year. Isn’t it time you saw your favorite Christmas movie live and on stage? Direct from Broadway, A Christmas Story: The Musical is coming to Music Hall December 2-14, opening Dallas Summer Musical’s 75th Anniversary Season. Nominated for three Tony Awards including Best Musical, the show takes audience members on a journey through time to 1940’s Indiana, where a young boy has only one wish for Christmas… but unfortunately it’s one that could potentially “shoot his eye out.”

 It’s a story that has delighted adults and children alike for decades, but director Tony Rando has also included a few surprises, with humorously heartfelt songs and cleverly choreographed dances intertwined throughout. Watch out for prop favorites like the notorious leg lamp, pink bunny pajamas and a sub-zero metal pole, as they’re brought to life once again in a musical adventure that “dazzled” The New York Times and was proclaimed as “a joyous Christmas miracle” by The Associated Press. As an additional treat, two of Texas’ own child stars have been selected to join the cast from an open audition at Fair Park. Watch for 12-year-old Grace Moore of Plano and 10-year-old Peyton Nicholson of Wylie, as they show off their acting chops during each of the Dallas performances. Whatever you have planned this holiday season, this is one treat you’ll want to add to your list. We triple dog dare you.
