From page A11 | November 15, 2013 |

The Winters Theatre Company will present Jean Shepherd’s “A Christmas Story,” a comedy adapted by Philip Grecian, from Nov. 23 through Dec. 8.

Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the 1940s Midwest follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas.

All the elements from the motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 23 to Dec. 6, and 2 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 1 and 8. There is a gala opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22.

Tickets are $10 general and $6 for seniors and students. Tickets to the gala are $15.
