Because nothing says Christmas like Halloween, tonight FOX released the first teaser for their upcoming live musical adaptation of A Christmas Story.
A much beloved Americana classic of the holidays, the original 1983 film centered around a young boy named Ralphie (Peter Billingsley), the Red Rider BB Gun he REALLY wanted for Christmas, and his larger than life father (Darren McGavin). Ok, and also a very special lamp.
The upcoming FOX live adaptation musical (think what NBC did with Sound of Music and Grease) will feature Matthew Broderick as the narrator/adult Ralphie, Maya Rudolph as Mother Parker, and Andy Walken as young Ralphie. Chris Diamantopoulos will be Ralphie’s dad Old Man Parker, and Jane Krakowski will be Miss Shields, Ralphie’s teacher.
Here’s the teaser:
A Christmas Story: Live is set to air on Sunday December 17th, 2017 on FOX.
