If you’re exclaiming “I can’t put my arms down!” and “You’ll shoot your eye out!” while decking the halls, then Bricolage’s latest production is perfect for you.

Long a fan-favorite, this year’s holiday edition of Midnight Radio is rewinding to the 1940s where nine-year-old Ralphie hopes his Red Ryder Christmas dreams will come true in Hohman, Indiana.

Relive the hijacks of Ralphie’s friends and family when Bricolage applies its trademark “Midnight Radio” treatment to the beloved holiday classic. The production recreates iconic moments from the hit 1983 film, based on Jean Shepherd’s 1966 book, such as Raphie’s “pink nightmare” bunny pajamas and his “Old Man’s” leg lamp.

Written by Philip Grecian, the show features Foley sound effects, commercial spoofs and vocal acrobatics performed via a retro radio format. Directed by Jeffrey Carpenter, the show stars Tony Bingham, Tami Dixon, Monteze Freeland, Adam Seligson and Maura Underwood.

The witty heartfelt comedy is sure to rekindle the holiday magic and awaken nostalgia in audiences of all generations.

Don’t miss the festive pre-show “Happy Half-hour” with a themed lobby, interactive holiday games and free drinks.
