Humorist Jean Shepherd’s beloved memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s. The story follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace, the school bully, the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost, Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday favorite.
