How We Make Pickles:  We could make them faster, but that wouldn’t make them better

For all the technical advances in food processing in recent years, many of our processes have changed little or not at all. We avoid any shortcuts that might detract from the quality of our pickles.

A Sparkling Gift of an Adaptation, With a Surefire Charmer of a Score!

This musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas.  Set in the 1940s in the fictional town Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker, and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts – an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle.  All the iconic scenes from the film are here, and the delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping ensemble numbers such as “Ralphie to the Rescue,” “A Major Award,” “Sticky Situation,” and the inevitable “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!” A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t.

Directed by Amber Burgess
Choreographed by Sarah Philabaum
