Opening night for TLT’s “A Christmas Story” Dec. 4

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, December 3, 2014

They’ve been rehearsing, set building, painting, gathering props and hunting costumes for weeks now, but Thursday, Dec. 4 is opening night for Tryon Little Theater’s Christmas classic, “A Christmas Story.”

Anna Marie Kuether directs a talented cast of adults and kids this in play, adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian from Jean Shepherd’s much-loved movie. An adult Ralph looks back to his childhood in Hohman, Indiana, and one Christmas in particular – the Christmas when his greatest desire was to own a Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle.

The leg-shaped lamp, the embarrassing pink bunny suit, the tongue-on-a-flagpole scene, and young Ralphie having his mouth washed out with lifebuoy soap for saying a very bad word, will probably bring back memories of your own childhood.
