Tickets are going fast, two performances have already sold out. Don't miss this holiday classic.
"A Christmas Story" is an oft-told tale, but rarely better. The Seacoast Repertory Theatre production is a holiday bright spot, with its string of delightful, iconic scenes strung together creating a thoroughly entertaining, funny and heartwarming whole.
It's a familiar, nostalgic story, thanks to the 1983 film version that runs on a 24-hour loop during the holiday on at least one television station. But this show sets itself apart. The live performance adds tenderness and intimacy thanks to outstanding performances.
