(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre is presenting the Holiday classic, A Christmas Story, The Musical weekends until November 20th. 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. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

With a Tony-nominated score from Pasek & Paul (Dear Evan Hansen), A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.

Starring as Ralphie Parker is Rothe Ripley with Tristan Monaghan stepping into the role of Ralphie’s younger brother, Randy. This show marks both Ripley and Monaghan’s first turns in a Mainstage production at MMT. Bill Weir narrates the story as Jean Shepherd with Louis Palena and Molly Chase returning to their roles as The Old Man & Mother from Music Mountain’s 2018 production.

Piccini, and Riley Thim, with Matthew Golian, Mia Smith, and Olwyn Whelan making their MMT MainStage debuts as part of this production. All of the children are currently enrolled in classes at the Music Mountain Theatre School.

A Christmas Story is Directed by Music Mountain Theatre resident company member, Anna Hentz, Choreographed by the theatre’s co-artistic director, Jordan Brennan, with musical direction by Jenna Parrilla Alvino, lighting design by Chris Cichon, sound design by Morgan Tarrant, and costumes designed by Jordan Brennan.
