Book by Joseph Robinette, Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Based on the motion picture “A Christmas Story” distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and upon “In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash,” written by Jean Shepherd.

This musical is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on TV every Christmas. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Homan, Indiana, the show follows 9-year-old Ralphie and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts — an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle.
