Nine-year-old Ralphie Parker wants one thing for Christmas, and one thing only: An Official Red Ryder Range Model Carbine Action BB Gun. There’s only one problem: everyone else is convinced he’ll shoot his eye out! Undeterred, he begins his saga of convincing all the necessary players, from his sweet but protective Mother, to his straight-laced teacher, Miss Shields, all the way to Santa Claus himself, that he needs that gun for the protection of his loved ones, and maybe even a little cowboy glory to call his own. Ralphie’s vivid imagination conjures up several show-stopping numbers, from “Ralphie to The Rescue” in which he defeats every foe a young boy can think of (robbers, mustache twirling villains, and of course, the school bully), to the thrilling tap routine performed by a gun moll-esque Miss Shields, who sheds her sweater set and romance novel for a glittery red gown and a whole lot of moxie. And Ralphie’s not the only one with dreams of grandeur. His old man is just as set on a goal of his own, namely, winning a prize in the $50,000 Great Figures of World Literature Contest. His dreams come true when he wins a major award from the competition in the form of a garish, fishnet stocking clad leg lamp, which horrifies his wife but brings him unadulterated joy. Filled with quirky and lovable characters, this zany, heartfelt, and nostalgic musical is as delightful as the biggest, shiniest present under the tree on Christmas morning. under the tree on Christmas

Role # 1 Jean Shepperd/Narrat
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Spoken. A charismatic storyteller who has the ability to weave a spell and draw an audience into his magical world. He is omniscient but not overpowering-a good-natured curmudgeon with a deadpan sense of humor. He holds the audience with his tremendous presence and spark. Acts as the narrator, and plays many roles in and out of the story.

Role # 2 Ralphie
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Cute and winsome, but not precious. Bright, but not precocious. A regular kid you wouldn't mind having as a next-door neighbor. He's a bit mischievous and rascally but with a twinkle in his eye. Voice must be unchanged. Must be an excellent singer and able to carry a show.

Role # 3 Mother Parker
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

More in charge of the family than the Old Man is, but she would never let him know it. She is warm and affable at times a bit daffy but not a pushover. A vibrant woman, she is always busy, especially anytime she's in the kitchen. She is the secret engine that keeps the family running, keeping the household together with an impressive balancing act. A wonderful expressive singer, contemporary mid-range, mix-belt, with some soprano. Must be a truly great actress as well as a great singer.

Role # 4 Frank Parker
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

A guy with a good heart, though it is buried beneath a sometimes gruff (and rough) exterior. He's a devoted husband and father who loves his family but doesn't overtly show it. He usually expects the worst but is capable of excitement if the situation warrants (though it usually doesn't). In his moments of fantasy, he is transformed from his usual grumbling blue-collar self to a true song and dance man. Genius comic actor who sings.

Role # 5 Randy
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Ralphie's younger brother. Cute, cuddly and whiny. Admires Ralphie but won't admit it. He's at the stage of childhood wherein he seems opposed to everything, but he's still lovable-not a brat. Voice must be unchanged.

Role # 11 Scut Farkus
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

The textbook example of a school-yard bully, except this truant doesn't go to school. He is loud, obnoxious and intimidating. Older than Ralphie and his class-mates by a year or two, he wears a perpetual scowl beneath his trademark coonskin cap. He always appears at the most inopportune times to scare and harass his innocent victims.

Role # 12 Grover Dill
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Always at Farkus' side is his toady, Dill. Much younger and decidedly smaller than Farkus, Dill delights in being tethered to his "hero." He punctuates the bully's threats and warnings with a series of rapid-fire bel-ly-laughs, thus making the two of them the scourge of the neighborhood whenever they appear. But, like most of their ilk, when the two are finally challenged and bested, they turn out to be the biggest cowards of all.

Role # 17 Miss Shields
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

The local elementary school teacher. A seemingly stereotypical 1940s educator-prim and proper. Stem when necessary, though warm-and even humorous-when the situation merits it. In Ralphie's fantasy, she becomes a dynamic, show-stopping, brassy belter and tapper-a force to be reckoned with. A funny musical comedy belter who taps. Must tap dance extremely well.

Role # 18 Santa
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

The Santa Claus at Higbee's Department Store is decidedly unlike the typical "Jolly Old Elf' of legend and lore. Ill- tempered and slightly inebriated, he is unhappy with his job. He dismisses each child as quickly as possible in an attempt to put an end to the day and, perhaps, head for the nearest "watering hole."
