Encore! Theatre Arts’ husband-and-wife directorial team helms a nostalgic yuletide performance inspired by the 1983 film A Christmas Story and its original source material, Jean Shepherd’s 1966 book, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash. A talented, youthful cast solves the problem of accidentally shrunken wardrobes and retells Shepherd’s classic seasonal tale of Ralphie Parker’s Christmas pursuit of a Red Ryder BB gun. During the play, the young boy continuously meets the oft-repeated phrase, “You’ll shoot your eye out,” as he attempts to cajole his family, teachers, and a department-store Santa into proffering his desired weaponry. The production recreates iconic elements from the film, including the family’s erratic furnace, the father’s female-leg lamp, and Ralphie toppling the fourth wall to throw BBs at audience members with ringing cell phones.
