Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre presents “A Christmas Story the Play” Nov. 27-Dec. 20 at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker on his adventurous Christmas quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the Christmas tree. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself at Higbee's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, even Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking. The show will be directed by seasoned Valley actor and director, KatiBelle Collins.
