By: Staff report

WILMINGTON — Theater lovers are invited to experience the musical rendition of the classic holiday film “A Christmas Story” at the Thalian Hall theatre.

The show will be Sunday and Dec. 17 at 3 p.m., and Friday and SAturday at 7:30 p.m. on the main stage. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for youth. Discounts are available for seniors and groups. To buy tickets, go to or call 910-632-2285.

The musical is based on the book by Joseph Robinette and music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

This classic holiday tale centers on a mischievous, bespectacled boy, Ralphie, who dreams of getting a BB gun for Christmas. In the weeks before the big holiday, Ralphie, his friends and his family get into all kinds of situations — including run-ins with a bully with “yellow eyes,” a tongue stuck to a flag pole, a bar of soap in the mouth, a garish leg lamp, a major award and a Chinese Christmas dinner.
