This is awesomesauce!!
Peter Billingsley, the actor who played a young Ralphie in 1983's A Christmas Story, will be bringing the story to stage in a musical, which will play at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre.
Billingsley has definitely moved on up in the world and made a name for himself as he has helped produce, as well as act in, several films such as Iron Man, Four Christmases, and The Break Up.
In a statement, Billingsley said:
"A Christmas Story has always meant a lot to me personally and to audiences worldwide. I'm excited to bring this film to the stage because the story and the characters lend themselves so well to the exciting ingredients that become available in the world of musicals. Just think about the idea of a Leg Lamp Kickline!"
A Christmas Story: The Musical! will officially open Dec. 9 and run through Dec. 30.
This makes us want to go out and buy a Red Ryder BB gun!
