Celebrate the holidays with hilarity and Apex Theatre Studio this December! On Friday, December 14 and Saturday, December 15, Apex Theatre Studio will present “A Christmas Story,” a full-length comedy based on the beloved film at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Tickets for Apex Theatre Studio presents “A Christmas Story” will go on sale tomorrow, Friday, September 21 at 10 a.m.
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. The Orlando Sentinel exclaims “Classics bloom quickly in modern times… you don’t have to have grown up with 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his ache for an air rifle under the tree to think of ‘A Christmas Story’ as a Christmas must. And [this] version is just as kindly and just as cockeyed as ‘A Christmas Story’ is meant to be.”
The production is under the direction of Ian Mairs, managing director of Apex Theatre Studio and features a combination of faculty, students, and guest artists from the Northeast Florida area. Reserved seating tickets are $25.00 and will be available online and at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Offices.
Now in its fifth year, Apex Theatre Studio (a non-profit training center with 501c3 status) fosters young artists who possess a passion and curiosity for acting, singing, dancing and stagecraft through a series of master classes, intensives, readings, and theatrical presentations.
