“You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!”

One boy. One holiday wish. And a world that seems to be conspiring to make certain it doesn’t come true. Prairie Players Civic Theatre kicks off the holiday season by presenting A Christmas Story: The Musical at the Orpheum Theatre, Galesburg.

Performance Dates: Friday, Nov. 21-Saturday, Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 23 at 3 p.m.

This classic holiday tale centers on a mischievous, bespectacled boy, Ralphie, who dreams of getting an Official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle BB-gun for Christmas. In the weeks before the big holiday, Ralphie, his friends and his family get into all kinds of situations — including run-ins with a bully with “yellow eyes,” a tongue stuck to a flag pole, a bar of soap in the mouth, a garish leg lamp, a major award, and a Chinese Christmas dinner. Filled with nostalgia and quirky childhood innocence, this production is a heartwarming event for the entire family.

MAIN FLOOR/BALCONY: $16 for Adults $10 for Students (including college/university students with I.D.)
MEZZANINE: $20 for Adults and Students
