A Christmas Story, the musical, is more fun than 24 hours of the movie!
This week, I went with my blogger friends to the new show – A Christmas Story – at the Fair Park Music Hall, as part of the Dallas Summer Musicals on-going season. If you think 24 hours of the movie "A Christmas Story" is the greatest part of the holiday season (like I do) then you have got to see it live. With songs. And dances. And the real live LEG LAMP.
Yep, in the lobby of the Fair Park Music Hall, they have the original leg lamp from the movie, encased in glass, in all it's glory.
But wait til you see the leg lamp starring in it's own Rockette-style dance number en masse. There are at least a dozen leg lamps acting as the third leg of a chorus line cast of dancers. Probably one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen in musical theater.
This is definitely a fantastic way to kick off the holiday season!
This broadway-style musical show is not only true to the story line of the movie, it one-ups the movie with amazing musical numbers like "The Genius of Cleveland Street" sung by good ol' dad as he solves the puzzle that eventually garners him the coveted leg lamp. This production even has real dogs (remember the dogs who eat the turkey?) and a tongue stuck to a light pole.
You can see a preview of the show here.
Tickets for A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story is playing at the Music Hall in Fair Park thru December 14th. You can get tickets for A Christmas Story here. Tickets range from $15 to $100 depending on where you choose to sit. I've seen many, many performances at the Music Hall in Fair Park, and even the balcony is a good seat. This show is recommended for all ages, and it is so much fun.
I hope you enjoy A Christmas Story as much I did. I'm definitely looking forward to the next Dallas Summer Musicals season!
Mommy's Wish List Disclosure: I am honored to have been a guest of Dallas Summer Musicals at a performance of this show, so that I would be able to tell you all about it.
