    Bit to Do

    Don't shoot your eye out. Instead, enjoy a holiday classic at Actors Theatre as they present A Christmas Story beginning tomorrow.

    A Christmas Story will premiere tomorrow, Nov. 9, and run until Nov. 28 at various dates and times. Performances will take place in the Pamela Brown Auditorium at Actors Theatre, located at 316 W. Main Street in downtown Louisville.

    Tickets range in price from $25 to $59 each. They can be purchased at the Actors Theatre website, at the box office, and by calling 502-584-1205 or 1-800-4ATL-TIX. A Christmas Story will run for two hours and thirty minutes with an intermission. More ticket information can be found at the Actors Theatre website.

    A Christmas Story returns to Actors Theatre after last year's sold-out run, telling the story of a child and his never-ending quest for the Red Ryder BB Gn. Ralphie will do practically anything to get it, despite many adults telling him he will shoot his eye out.

    While trying to get the BB gun, Ralphie also deals with life in his Midwest surroundings, including battling the neighborhood bullies and witnessing a triple dog dare of a tounge against a frozen flagpole. Ralphie also deals with life in his dysfunctional family's home, which includes plenty of soap and an award in the form of a leg lamp.

    The production is based on the 1983 movie of the same name, which in turn is based on Jean Shepherd's novel In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash. Phillip Grecian created the stage version of A Christmas Story. Sean Daniels directed the Actors Theatre production.

    During A Christmas Story's run, Actors Theatre will present Barefoot in the Park. Recently married Corie and Paul work on getting their first apartment despite over-the-top neighbors and a mother getting into their business. The Neil Simon-created and Marc Masterson-directed production will run from Nov. 16 until Dec. 18.
