The Carroll County Community Theatre will bring a beloved motion picture to life with its production of A Christmas Story, December 1 – 4 at the Carrollton Center for the Arts.
“The movie is a classic and is watched over and over by people all over the country,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “Our audiences will be amazed by how we transport this hilarious comedy from the screen to the stage. Come prepared to laugh out loud.”
The play and the movie are based on author Jean Shepherd’s books about his Depression Era childhood and detail Ralphie Parker’s Christmas quest for a Red Ryder BB gun.
“I’m privileged to work with this amazing cast,” said Director Duane Sohl. “They have worked hard over the past twelve weeks to capture the magic of a typical Middle America family’s Christmas in a simpler time. With a nod to the story’s creator, our presentation begins and ends as it would have on Jean Shepherd’s WOR-AM radio show, with the opening and closing theme: Bahn Frei, by Arthur Fiedler. Flick lives!”
This performance of A Christmas Story is sponsored by Tritt Realty.
There are shows December 1 – 3 at 7:30 pm and December 4 at 2 pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at carrolltonarts.com, by phone at 770-838-1083 or at the center’s box office at 251 Alabama Street.
