BDT Stage in Boulder presents
Christmas Story the Musical
November 10 – January 5, 2019
From the songwriting team behind the smash hit Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and the Academy Award-winning film La La Land, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL, brings the classic 1983 movie to hilarious life on stage! Set in 1940s Indiana, a young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL plays BDT Stage this holiday season November 10, 2018 – January 5, 2019.
Directed by award-winning actor Scott Beyette, choreographer McKayla Marso, and music direction by Neal Dunfee, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL features musical numbers like “A Major Award,” “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out,” and “Up on Santa’s Lap.”
Nominated for three 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical, the Associated Press calls A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL “a joyous Christmas miracle,” while The New York Times writes “I was dazzled. You’d have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face.”
Tickets for A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL are on sale now starting at just $45 and include both the performance and dinner served by the stars of the show. All tickets for preview performances (November 10 – 15, 2018) are just $40. Group rate tickets and season subscriptions are available for all performances throughout the year. Call (303) 449-6000 or visit www.bdtstage.com for reservations.
BDT Stage presents four Broadway-quality musicals each season, and has been recognized locally and nationally for commitment to theatrical excellence. Boulder’s Daily Camera praises BDT’s “consistency in technical achievement, performance and overall production level as it sets a high standard for theatrical professionalism.” BDT Stage continues its 41st season with the holiday classic A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL, a return of the popular shows DISENCHANTED and MOTONES VS JERSEYS in the spring, and DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST rounding out the season.
