A Christmas Story 

When: Dec. 1-22 2012
In my house growing up, the 1983 film was always called “the BB gun movie,” and it always had a special aura. Few, if any, of the specific events ever happened to us, but Jean Shepherd’s witty memoir of the roller-coaster ride youngsters experience while waiting for Christmas morning felt like it was our story. Now in its fourth season, the Rep’s production of A Christmas Story may not hit every mark as it searches for that same degree of intimacy, but it does its level best to bring all of the original’s familiar characters and uproarious episodes to life. With a little help from the audience, 9-year-old Ralphie Parker (played by grown-up Sam Whited) will face those close-to-home battles with bullies, teachers and Santa Claus himself in his quest for his own 200-shot range-model air rifle.
