This festive adaptation of the original 1983 film brings Ralphie Parker’s quest for the ultimate Christmas gift – a Red Ryder BB gun – to life on the FRT stage. A Christmas Story is fun for the whole family, and with all the iconic elements of the motion picture, including a department store Santa Claus and the infamous leg lamp, this classic tale is sure to light up your holiday season.
Additionally, join us after the first performance for an exclusive opening night party featuring complimentary food and beverages, a photo booth, and a meet and greet with the cast and creative team! The opening night party is included with a ticket purchased for opening night, September 13th, and will follow the show in the FRT Lobby. All theatre and dance majors and minors are invited to attend free of charge.
The performance on Sunday, December 15th at 1:00pm will be our Theatre for All performance.
The Forest Roberts Theatre and Northern Michigan University launched the Theatre For All Initiative on campus in 2018 and have made it their mission to make the performing arts more accessible to children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as their families. Each show is performed in a friendly, supportive environment for families and friends with children or adults who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensory sensitivities.
