A CHRISTMAS STORY: THE MUSICAL! TOUR INFO
We’re so excited to announce that for the 2011 holiday season, A Christmas Story: The Musical! will be embarking on a five-city National Tour culminating with a three-week run at the legendary Chicago Theatre.
If ACS is touring through your (or a nearby) town, we’d be honored if you’d come and check out the show! After a very successful run last year at Seattle’s 5th Ave Theatre, we’ve made some tweaks and can’t wait to get the show on the road. The production features a stunning 30-member cast, a 16-piece orchestra, and all of your favorite iconic moments from its cinematic namesake.
We are particularly jazzed that the show will be making a two-week stop in Detroit, just a stone’s throw away from Ann Arbor where we spent 4 years at the University of Michigan. We look forward to seeing some old friends as we meet up with the tour for some exciting events in Ann Arbor. GO BLUE!
Peter Billingsley (a.k.a. Ralphie from the original movie and producer of hit films including Iron Man) will continue on as a producer for A Christmas Story: The Musical! The show is helmed by Tony Award-winning director John Rando (Urinetown) and choreographed by Warren Carlyle (Follies, Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway). It boasts a fantastic cast of Broadway talents including Gene Weygandt (Wicked), John Bolton (Spamalot), Rachel Bay Jones (Hair), Karen Mason (Mamma Mia) and more!
