A Christmas Story, A Family Play, Opens This Weekend in Doylestown
The Town and Country Players will open their production of A Christmas Story on Friday (November 8). The family-friendly show will run through November 23 at the theater in Buckingham (Bucks County).
I have seen a production of A Christmas Story before, and I must tell you… it’s one of my favorites. Of course, the plot is similar to the movie, which was inspired by Jean Shepherd’s memoirs. So we’ll follow 9-year-old Ralphie Parker on his quest to get a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas.
Here’s the trailer for the show:
Tickets are on sale now. Tickets for adults are just $20, and children are $10. You better hurry because it looks like tickets are selling quickly for many of the performance dates/times.
All of your favorite moments from the movie will be depicted on the stage including the leg lamp, the tongue on a lamppost and the exploding furnace. Oh, I’m laughing just thinking about those scenes.
The Town and Country Players always put on great productions. Andy McPhee will perform as the show’s narrator with Will Trymbiski appearing as the young Ralphie Parker. This year’s show is directed by Anna Hughes, and it is produced by Joe O’Neill and Nancy Ridgeway.
Town and Country Players are located on Route 263 in Buckingham. The show runs weekends through November 23rd, with showtimes at 8pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Additionally, there are 2 pm matinees 23rd. Curtain time is 8 pm for Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening shows and 2 pm for Saturday and Sunday matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
