Few weeks ago, I had a one of a kind experience when I was invited to A Christmas Story The Musical in-house press event by Paper Mill Playhouse. I braced myself as we walked into a stage door not knowing something delightful is about to unfold.
We went straight into the rehearsal studio, where everyone was just gearing up to get started and at this point, I was just full of excitement to see what happens next, while clutching my camera hoping I won’t miss a shot!

Here’s the thing, I actually never saw the movie and I know a lot of people have watched it, so this was really a fresh experience for me and I wasn’t disappointed!
The story revolves around Ralphie, a bright, young boy, who only wants one thing for Christmas, and this is a hilarious tale of his desperate quest to ensure that the most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree this Christmas – an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle.
How the cast rendered this wonderful story in the studio brought so much joy and fun emotions all around. I watched in awe with a big smile on my face as the cast of Broadway veterans and amazing young talent delivered a heartwarming and breathtaking performance.
