The Fireside is proud to feature two talented boys sharing the role of Ralphie in our premier production of A CHRISTMAS STORY, The Musical. (We just make it a practice not to post the children’s names or photos online.) They are joined by 17 more area talented youth sharing the other nine children’s roles and a stellar adult cast selected from our New York and Chicago auditions.
Leading the adult cast are T.J. Mannix as Jean Shepherd whose story is being told, Heather Patterson King as “mother,” and Victor Hernandez as “the old man.” Heather and Victor are already favorites of our audiences and we’re pleased to welcome T.J. to the Fireside family. For more information on their previous roles and the rest of the cast we invite you to visit our Meet the Cast page.
The show is based on the 1983 movie that quickly became a Christmas classic. With the addition of a funny and heartfelt score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul who wrote music for the hit movies LA LA LAND and THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, it captures holiday wonder with such deliciously wicked wit that it’s sure to delight children and grown-ups alike. Tickets are going fast so early reservations are recommended.
