Carrying on a tradition of high-quality, audience-focused productions that dates back to 1926, Theatre Harrisburg ushers in the holiday season with a spirited rendition of A Christmas Story. Originally released on film in 1983, A Christmas Story splits sides and melts hearts with an eccentric lineup of loveable characters. Performers bring to life classic scenes that involve the Red Rider BB gun, frozen flagpole, and infamous lamp shaped like a risqué Chia pet. Lance Miller slides behind the thick-rimmed glasses of Ralphie, and Scott Schmittel and Stephanie Trdenic tackle the roles of Ralphie’s comically incompatible parents. Although the show is family friendly, Theatre Harrisburg asks that no attendees or newspaper critics be younger than the age of 5.

Theatre Harrisburg

Theatre Harrisburg has always had community at its heart. Born in the "Little Theatre Movement" of the 1920s, the first place it called home was the basement of the Harrisburg Public Library. It was there that Mrs. Peters, president of the Women's University Club, gathered nine other women to discuss the creation of a volunteer-based company that could produce quality plays. And the women took action. For decades volunteers on and off the stage bounced from venue to venue putting on shows such as The Dover Road, until 1950, when it found its first home at Sixth and Hurlock in uptown. Then, in 1997, the Theatre made a commitment to be the resident company at the new Whitaker Center. Still, whether putting musicals such as The Rocky Horror Show or non-musical dramas, such as a version of Death of a Salesman with all the tap numbers taken out, Theatre Harrisburg relies on the talent of the community.
