A Christmas Story

In this theatrical adaptation of the classic film, 9-year-old Ralphie Parker wants nothing more for Christmas than a Red Ryder BB gun, no matter what its cost in eyes. On his quest to prove the virtue of his cause, Ralphie encounters discouraging teachers, unfriendly Santas, the Queen Mother of Dirty Words, and worst of all, a bright pink set of bunny pajamas. Released in 1983 and based on the semifictional anecdotes of memoirist Jean Shepherd, A Christmas Story swiftly cemented itself as a holiday tradition, and today families continue to respond to its warm humor.

The Nutcracker

Accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s celebrated score, The Nutcracker weaves a magical tale of holiday adventure. Clara, the story's heroine, receives a nutcracker from her godfather, a wizardly toymaker named Drosselmeyer. Sneaking downstairs to see the toy after everyone else has gone to bed, Clara suddenly finds herself caught in the middle of a pitched battle between the toys and an army of mice. After saving the nutcracker with a well-thrown shoe to the Mouse King's head, Clara and her now-living prince venture into the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets to celebrate amid the dances of nimble snowflakes, the regal Sugar Plum Fairy, and seasonally confused vampires.
