'A Christmas Story, The Musical' at Fisher Theatre in Detroit

This funny stage show, based on the cult classic 1983 movie, finds its way into the hearts of southeast Michigan families Nov. 15-27, 2011

There's only one thing little Ralphie Parker wants for Christmas – and his quest for that Red Ryder Action Air Rifle BB gun is the basis for A Christmas Story: The Musical, heading to the Fisher Theatre in Detroit Nov. 15-27, 2011.

Based on the 1983 cult classic movie, this tale has long been a favorite of anyone who's ever been a kid. Desperate to make sure that BB gun ends up under his Christmas tree, Ralphie hatches a series of schemes to ensure his dream comes true – despite the prediction from his mom, teacher and even Santa that he'll "shoot his eye out."

All the while, he's dealing with an annoying little brother, a yellow-eyed bully, a friend whose tongue sticks to a frozen lamppost and his father's obsession with a notorious major award he's won in a contest.

It's a trip down memory lane for most, and good fun for the entire family (ages 5-plus). Tickets range $29-$88.85.

See the Metro Parent listing for show times, the address and more on A Christmas Story: The Musical.
