Marquette, MI – (12/03/19) – The hilarious Holiday classic “A Christmas Story” comes to life on the stage of the Forest Roberts Theatre at NMU this month.
Bill Digneit, Department Head of Theatre and Dance at Northern Michigan University, joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about this adaptation of humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s.
Digneit says the play follows the well-loved story of 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas, and includes all of the other parts of the classic story that make for great fun for the whole family.
The show runs:
Wednesday, December 11 at 7:30pm
Thursday, December 12 at 7:30pm
Friday, December 13 at 7:30pm
Saturday, December 14 at 4:00pm and 7:30pm
