Rehearsals & Performances:
Rehearsals begin October 5th and will run most weekday evenings.
The show runs November 24th - December 23rd.

Principal Roles:
Ralph - Ralphie Parker’s adult alter-ego. Acts as the story’s narrator. Also may play: Cowboy, Tree lot owner, Delivery man and neighbor (adult 40+)
Ralphie Parker - Protagonist. A young day-dreamer. Ralphie will stop at nothing to get his ultimate Christmas wish - a Red Ryder BB gun - no matter how many odds are against him. (Stage age 9-12)
Mother - Patient and kind. Discretely smarter than her husband. While strict with Ralphie, she can also be a bit too coddling of her younger son, Randy. (Adult age range 35-50)
The Old Man - Ralphie’s father. Although often grumpy, he certainly means well. He has a strong desire to make a better life for his family and prove himself a winner, even if through unconventional means. He is a savant of vulgarity (although B-rated). (Adult age range (35-50)
Randy - Ralphie’s younger brother. Coddled and over-protected by his mother, much more so than his older brother. He is certainly cute, but can be a bit over-dramatic, even for his young age. (Stage age 7-9)
Secondary Roles:
Flick - Ralphie’s friend and classmate. Despite being a target for the neighborhood bully, he is always up for a dare, often with disastrous consequences. Also may play various roles during Ralphie’s fantasy sequences. (Stage age 9-12)
Schwartz - Ralphie’s friend and classmate. His good-hearted nature leads him to be an unwitting scapegoat. Also may play various roles during Ralphie’s fantasy sequences. (Stage age 9-12)
Scut Farkus - A year or two older than the other boys. Schoolyard bully who frightens and torments the other kids - but is he as tough as he seems? Also may play various roles during Ralphie’s fantasy sequences. (Must Look older than Ralphie)
Esther Jane Alberry - Classmate. Caring and loyal. She clearly has a crush on Ralphie, but is it reciprocated? Also may play various roles during Ralphie’s fantasy sequences. (Stage age 9-12)
Helen Weathers - Classmate. Although teacher’s bet, she surely has a tough side when it comes to the boys in school. Also may play various roles during Ralphie’s fantasy sequences.(stage age 9-12)
Miss Shields - Ralphie’s teacher. A competent educator. She cares for her students but sometimes finds the children’s antics tiresome. (Adult)
Santa Claus - Your typical mall Santa. He likes children but after a while, he finds his seasonal job to be tedious and maybe even degrading. After a long day, he likely just wants to go home to a cigar and some scotch. (Adult)
Ensemble (if used) - Other school children, tree-lot customers, mall-goers, etc. 

Note: age of children may vary depending on casting
