Oh, Ralphie
“You’ll shoot yer eye out, kid.” Embrace the alluring glow of the leg lamp during Covedale Center for the Performing Arts’ production of A Christmas Story. If you’re like me, you probably watch the classic holiday movie in your PJs every year on Christmas Eve, but beginning this Thursday, Nov. 29 you can catch the sentimental tale based on Jean Shepherd’s memoir about growing up in Indiana in the 1940s live and onstage.

In case you needed a plot refresher: Ralphie Parker really wants a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, begs almost everyone for it, mutters “Oh, Fudge” a lot (except he didn’t say fudge), takes on the school bullies, watches his pal get his tongue stuck to a frosted lamppost and is forced to wear a pink bunny onesie.

Tickets are $26-$29. The show runs through Dec. 23. Visit for more info.
