One of Florida’s oldest community theaters, The Gainesville Community Playhouse has generated quality plays and musicals since its initial 1927 performance while assembling talented, local volunteer casts and crews. Adapted from the beloved 1983 classic holiday movie, A Christmas Story chronicles Ralphie Parker’s humorous efforts to convince his reluctant parents to gift him a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Recently relocated to the 210-seat Vam York Theater, The Gainesville Community Theater harnesses its facilities to enchant audiences with entertaining plays and staged readings of cereal-box nutritional information each season.
