A Christmas Story

By Philip Grecian
Based upon the motion picture A Christmas Story distributed by Warner Bros.
Written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown, and Bob Clark

Directed by Jeff Mead
December 1-3 and 8-10

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 (“You’ll shoot yer eye out!”) 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. The perennial Christmas favorite brought to life.

COVID Health and Safety

With the return to live theatre, the ICCT board has voted to take the following precautions with our in-person productions:

  • All cast and crew involved with a production are asked to be up-to-date on COVID vaccinations for the health and safety of their fellow volunteers.
  • Mask requirements will depend on community transmission level. If high, masks will be required (except for cast during tech week and during performances). If medium, masks encouraged. If low, masks optional.
