One of the enjoyable things about Christmas is watching "A Christmas Story". Today, I had the pleasure of seeing it on stage in Colorado. The locals who performed did an exceptional job in portraying the cast from the original movie which was released back in 1983.
The movie was not a musical, but in 2009, it became a musical and opened at the theater in Seattle, Washington. It is now a seasonal production that is seen throughout the United States.
The movie takes place at Christmas in the 1940s in Cleveland, Ohio. The nine year old, Ralphie, wants only one thing: a Red Ryder Range 200 Shot BB gun. He mentions this to his mom and she lets him know that he'll put his eye out with this BB gun. The whole movie is about his fantasy of getting this gun and all the oppositions he runs into with his parents, his teacher and even Santa himself.
If you have never seen this movie, you need to take an afternoon or evening and relax in front of the television and enjoy the story of Ralphie and his family.
Who knows this movie may become a traditional among your own family?
