I hope that you will support The West Milford Players and bring the whole family to this amazing show.”

Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of 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. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out”, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun.

Join Ralphie, his friend Flick getting his tongue stuck to a flagpole; his brother Randy who refuses to eat, and the bullies, Farkus and Dill and you get some classic scenes from the original movie. With Ralphie’s Mom and his Old Man getting the ultimate award, a leg lamp, add a “deranged” bunny suit, and you are sure to have a family Christmas all ages can enjoy.
