Minnesota State Mankato Theatre and Dance is inviting you to come kick off your holiday season early with “A Christmas Story: The Musical,” based on the Jean Shepherd story and film that has become a beloved classic.

The story, set in 1940, follows Ralphie Parker, a 9-year-old kid in small-town Indiana who wants nothing more for Christmas than an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. The obstacles standing in his way? A whole slew of grown-ups who are sure he would “shoot his eye out” if his wish were to be granted.

Tickets are $22 regular; $19 for seniors, youth 16 and under and groups of 15 or more; and $15 for University tudents. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 507-389-6661.
