Humorist Jean Sheperd's memoir of growing up in the mid-west of the 1940s follows Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. All the elements from the classic motion picture are here: the exploding furnace, the school bully, the boys experiment with a wet tongue on a lamppost and the infamous leg lamp.
Extra safety measures such as patrons being required to wear masks for the duration of the performance, as well socially distanced seating implemented.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Friday & Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, 1050 A1A North, Ponte Vedra Beach. Tickets are $32
