‘Christmas Story’ tickets available

— Advance tickets are now on sale for Muskogee Little Theatre’s holiday production, “A Christmas Story.” Tickets are available at Soundworld, 123 E. Okmulgee Ave. (918) 683-4901. Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for students. Production dates are Nov. 30 through Dec. 8. Curtain is 8 p.m., except Sunday at 2 p.m.

Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest of 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. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

The show has all the elements from the beloved motion picture, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boy’s 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; and Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios.

“A Christmas Story” is sponsored by Armstrong Bank and presented with the assistance of The Oklahoma Arts Council.
