A Christmas Story recently kicked off the list of our favorite Christmas movies, and with good reason.  It’s a classic.  Peter Billingsley, who starred as Ralphie Parker, knows this better than anyone.  And so it is with great pride that Billingsley will executive produce A Christmas Story: The Musical!, a stage musical set for a December 9-30 run in Seattle.  Billingsley tells THR, “I’m excited to bring this film to the stage because the story and the characters lend themselves so well to the world of musicals… Just think about the idea of a leg-lamp kickline.”

Broadway composers Benj Paske and Justin Paul penned the original score.  Billingsley hopes a successful initial run will launch the show to more stages in the future.
