BROOKHAVEN — The countdown to opening night is down to three days. Brookhaven Little Theatre will perform its first showing of A Christmas Story on December 8 and will perform many more shows until December 18.

A Christmas Story is a musical comedy recommended for people of all ages. It has a run time of two and a half hours with an intermission. The musical is based on the movie A Christmas Story which runs on TV for 24 hours straight on Christmas Day every Christmas.

It is set in the 1940s in Hohman, Indiana where 9-year-old Ralphie Parker dreams of getting an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle with the compass in the stock. His dreams are hampered at every turn by teachers, Santa and his parents who tell him he will simply shoot his eye out.

BLT will feature the iconic scenes from the movie such as his friend Flick getting a tongue stuck to the flag pole, his little brother Randy getting dressed up in his snowsuit like an astronaut preparing for a trip to the moon. Bullies Farkus and Dill will be in the musical as will the major Leg Lamp award and other scenes from the classic.
