It’s getting close to everyone’s favorite holiday of the year. Christmas. As the holiday cheer spreads throughout the community, the wonderful aroma of apple cinnamon fills family homes; jingling bells ring and one of the most iconic Christmas films goes into non-stop syndication on Christmas Eve. The film tells the story of a young boy in the 1940s with an infatuation for a Red Ryder BB gun from Saint Nick. A Christmas Story marathon on TBS has been a beloved tradition for 19 years. But now, fans don’t have to wait for Christmas Eve to view their favorite holiday movie. Since 2009, A Christmas Story: The Musical has recreated some of the most memorable moments from the original film, transforming them into scenes filled with hilarious songs. The randomness of the leg lamp plot has always strangely been one of the highlights of the film. In the musical the plot elevates to new heights of quirkiness, when Ralphie’s dad lifts into a fantasy song titled “A Major Award,” topped off with a kick-line of dancers. The hilarity of A Christmas Story: The Musical arrives at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Nov. 3-8 and at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Nov. 10-15. Tickets are available for purchase at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center box office. For more information, please visit www.tulsapac.com
