THEATER | 'A Christmas Story: The Musical'


Grab your glasses and pink bunny costume — "A Christmas Story" is coming back to Rochester. The touring musical based on the 1983 movie of the same name follows Ralphie Parker, a bespectacled kid in 1940s Indiana as he tries to scheme his way to getting the perfect gift: an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle — despite warnings that he'll shoot his eye out. In his misadventures he comes across a maniacal mall Santa, an infamous Leg Lamp, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole.

"A Christmas Story" will be performed at the Rochester Auditorium Theatre (885 East Main Street) on Tuesday through Thursday, December 12-14, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, December 15, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, December 16, at 2 and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, December 17, at 1 and 6:30 p.m. Tickets start at $38 and can be purchased by calling 222-5000 or at
