The leg lamp, the pink bunny suit, the Chinese restaurant, the frozen flag pole -- all your favorites from the film are here in this musical adaptation of the movie-turned-TV-classic "A Christmas Story", which even happens to include a tune called "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out." With a score from the Oscar-winning composing team of Pasek and Paul ("Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land"), this holiday spectacular follows the Yuletide adventures of Ralphie, a cherubic '40s-era kid who's got one simple Christmas wish: He wants a Red Ryder BB gun. Or, more specifically, a "Red Ryder carbine-action, 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time." But the grown-ups in his life are rightfully wary of the request. This song-filled romp offers up a heaping helping of fun family holiday entertainment at the Woodbury Community Theater's Loft Stage.

When you live in a town called Christmas Lake, there's naturally a lot of pressure to put on a stellar Christmas pageant every year. With that in mind, the local theater company is one day away from putting on their beloved annual production of "It's a Wonderful Life" when they get some shocking news: They've lost their rights to perform the play! For Collin, the theater director, this is the last straw -- the theater is on the brink of bankruptcy and his marriage to his wife Tess isn't faring much better, either. Now, he's got just 24 hours to round up enough actors to learn an entirely new Christmas show before the curtain goes up. Full of laughter, plot twists and holiday cheer, "Miracle On Christmas Lake" at The Cabaret at Camp in St. Paul is a heartwarming story about coming together in the spirit of Christmas. [less-]
