YOU WILL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT!!!
The Top 3
- The “Major Award” won by Ralphie’s Old Man. The family was excited when the large crate arrived marked F-R-A-G-I-L-E (must be from Italy)! What could possibly be inside??? A lamp shaped like a woman’s leg wearing a fishnet stocking – risky or risque!!! Ralphie could not keep his hands off it and the Old Man was delighted with the prize while Ralphie’s mom tried to hide her displeasure. Ralphie’s mom accidently breaks the lamp – coincendce or not!
- Ralphie’s “Aunt Clara” gives him bunny pajamas for Christmas and has to put it on for the whole family to marvel – oh the humiliation and then his father calls the outfit “a deranged Easter Bunny”!
- Ralphie helping his father change a flat and saying the F-dash-dash-dash word! Gotta love the soap in the mouth punishment.

The movie really came ALIVE on the Stage!
The Bumpuses numerous bloodhounds who destroy the Parkers’ Christmas turkey. Hello Christmas Chinese Peking Duck! Ralphie’s father (aka the Old Man) and his complaining or swearing about something, like the hounds, the furnace or the car. The Old Man really let the Old Lady have it when she broke his prized Leg Lamp – hillarious scene!
Ralphie receiving his Secret Society decoder pin from the Little Orphan Annie radio show. What an utter disappointment about the secret message!
Ralphie and the neighborhood bully (Scut Farkus) and his sidekick (Grover Dill). Ralphie really let Scut have it – punching and swearing – no actual swearing, keeping the show PG here!
Ralphie dealing with his kid brother Randy and his issues with food (how does the Piggy eat) and him being so bundled up by his mom that he cannot put his arms down. Raannddyyy!!!
Can your tongue stick to a frozen flagpole? YES! Ralphie’s friend Schwartz throws down a “triple dog dare” to Flick who gets his tongue stuck to the pole. Do Not Try This One Kids!
A Great Evening of Fun and Adventure! Remember to Support Your Local Community Art Programs this Holiday Season.
