Based on the classic holiday movie of the same name, humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself! The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" This stage adaptation has all the warmth and memorable scenes from the movie!
