Home / Culture / Best Stage Play / “A Christmas Story” (New Stage Theatre)


Director Turner Crumbley of New Stage Theatre brought a Christmas classic to the capital city when he hosted a production of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s “A Christmas Story: The Musical” in late December 2016. Crumbley put together an ensemble cast that included David Spencer, Cannon Bosarge, Frances Bordlee, Wyatt Roberson, Daniel Hines, Collin Gray, Willis Thigpen and more.

“A Christmas Story: The Musical” is based on director Bob Clark’s 1983 classic holiday film “A Christmas Story” about Ralphie Parker and his quest to get an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle for Christmas.

Pasek and Paul, the songwriting duo behind “Dear Evan Hansen,” “The Greatest Showman” and the 2017 Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning “La La Land,” created the musical in 2009. —Dustin Cardon
