The Racine Theater Guild will perform “A Christmas Story” starting on December 3 until December 19. This iconic holiday show is sponsored by Rasmussen Diamonds.
About the show:
Ralphie Parker only has one wish: to wake up Christmas morning with the coveted Red Ryder Range Model Carbine Action BB Gun under his tree. While he plans and schemes to ensure it arrives, he’s met with the same response again and again, “You’ll shoot your eye out!” One of the most iconic holiday movies hilariously comes to life on stage, complete with all its pink-bunny-suit, glowing-leg-lamp, triple-dog-daring glory, full of heart and laughter for the whole family.
Masks are required for all audience members and volunteers not performing on stage.
Performances take place Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Saturday, December 11 and December 18 will also have a 2 p.m. show.
