A Christmas Story the Musical


Derby Dinner Playhouse will present A CHRISTMAS STORY THE MUSICAL, live on stage November 10 thru December 30, 2021. For ticket information please call 812-288-8281 or visit www.derbydinner.com.

Based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas, this musical is set in the 1940’s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana.  A CHRISTMAS STORY THE MUSICAL follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker on his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. 

Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All of the iconic scenes from the movie are featured as well as a delightfully versatile score that ranges from gentle ballads to show stopping dance numbers. 

A CHRISTMAS STORY THE MUSICAL was written by Joseph Robinette with Music & Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.  Derby Dinner’s production was directed by Matthew Brennan with Choreography by Heather Paige Folsom and Musical Direction by Scott Bradley.  The cast includes Cary Wiger, Jim Hesselman, Jillian Prefach, Lauren Kent and more, as well as many talented young performers from the Southern Indiana and Louisville area.  This production is recommended for ages 8 & up.
