Bryan High School Theatre "A Christmas Story"
Friday, November 15, 2019

Bryan High School Theatre is hard at work again this fall to bring a Christmas classic to the stage. Most families in America make it a tradition to watch Ralphie Parker and his hilarious quest for a Red Ryder BB gun every holiday season in the movie, A CHRISTMAS STORY. This well-loved classic comes to life on stage this November. Audiences will be delighted when they see all their favorite scenes and hear their favorite quotes. Whether it’s “FRAG-EE-LAY” , “Oh Fudge, or “You’ll shoot your eye out”, the cast brings all the iconic moments life. Sophomore Nolan Kuhn brings youthful hope to the role of Ralphie Parker as he focuses on his singular Christmas wish.

Ethan Psurney, another sophomore, plays his oatmeal- snorting, snowsuit- wearing younger brother. The parents, played by seniors Hannah Goodrich and Austin Manley, won’t disappoint if you’re expecting their memorable scene with the leg lamp. Sophomore Max Eckhardt gives his narrative voice as Ralphie all grown up which adds all the nostalgia and plenty of laughs. Expect to see some other favorites including Jillian Drinnon (junior) as the teacher Miss Shields, Louis Duggan (junior) as the bully, Scut Farkas, and of course, Kaleb Sampson (senior) as Santa. Over 20 other lively high schoolers fill out the cast of school children and the townspeople of Homan, Indiana.

Come expecting to see one of your all-time favorite moments from the movie on stage, but expect some surprises and new scenes, as well, as this group of talented actors brings this family-friendly classic from the small screen to the Bryan stage.

Performances: 7 PM on Friday, Nov. 15 and Saturday, Nov. 16. 2 PM on Sunday, Nov. 17 at the Bryan Arts and Education Auditorium.
