You’ve seen the movie, and now it’s time to see the musical. A Christmas Story the Musical is coming to Stageworks Theatre on Nov. 24–Dec. 17. You’ll enjoy the story you’ve come to know and love, but this time, it will contain songs. You’ve never seen Ralphie and the gang like this, so get your tickets now. Tickets start at $19, so you don’t have to spend much money to have a good time.
Your Favorite Scenes Come to Life
Some people are surprised by how similar the musical is to the movie. Sure, the movie doesn’t have singing and dancing, but you will notice that some of the scenes are taken verbatim from the movie. That makes this a great option for people who love the movie. It’s just like the movie only a little bit better because it’s live and it has catchy music.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have to be a fan of the movie to enjoy the musical though. It’s a crazy good time even if you’ve never seen the film.
More Humor than the Movie
A Christmas Story is a funny movie, but it’s an even funnier musical. The writers decided to add even more humor to the musical, so you can expect some gut-busting laughs throughout. From the funny songs to the excellent delivery, this musical knows how to bring the laughter.
The Lamp Has a Starring Role
If you’ve seen the movie, you know the leg lamp is an important prop. It’s even more important in the musical. The part where a group of leg lamps performs is one of the best parts of the entire musical. You won’t be able to stop yourself from smiling and humming along during this part.
The dancing leg lamps aren’t the only stars of the show. You will love the songs “Ralphie to the Rescue” and “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out,” and the ballad “What a Mother Does” is one of the best in the show. It is a touching moment in the musical that usually goes for big laughs. You might even find yourself wiping a tear or two away. Don’t worry though. You’ll be doubled over with laughter shortly after that performance, so you won’t have to stay sad for very long.
Stageworks Theatre isn’t the only place bringing the Christmas cheer this holiday season. You can also get a huge dose of it at Mike Calvert Toyota in Houston, Texas. See us this holiday season and pick up a special gift for yourself. Then, you can drive off into 2018.
