Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas
Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out!” All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more.
SANTA WILL BE HERE!
What do you want for Christmas little boy? I want a spring action single shot red Ryder BB gun!
Calling all kids! Come see Santa Claus and tell him your Christmas wish list.
Santa will be visiting the Renaissance Center in between the matinee and evening shows of “A Christmas Story” on December 16th from 4:30-6:30 pm. Top-secret location will be posted that day.
Please be in line by 6:00pm as Santa has to leave by 6:30 to visit elsewhere. Light refreshments will be served.
**This event is FREE but we are asking kids to bring an unwrapped toy to be donated to local children in need this holiday season.
