bctMon & Tue, Nov. 12 & 13 at 7pm

Beavercreek Community Theatre
3868 Dayton Xenia Rd
Beavercreek, Ohio 45432

An Unlikely relationship is forged in a quirky tourist shop called “A little piece of heaven”. Restless biker Mike, who works in the shop, finds a friend in sassy elderly Lily, although the relationship certainly doesn’t start out that way. But there is something odd about this little shop owned by the equally odd Elizabeth and Henry. Suspicion and disagreement turn to respect and trust in this place where long lost things are finally found.

Performances run Jan. 25-Feb. 3.

A CHRISTMAS STORY Runs Nov. 29-Dec. 23

CCPA_A Christmas Story logoA CHRISTMAS STORY
Covedale Center for the Performing Arts
Nov. 29-Dec. 23
[West Price Hill]

Directed by Tim Perrino

Cast: Nicole Capobianco as the Mother, Chris Bishop as the Old Man, Eric Schaumloffel as Ralphie, Henry Charles Weghorst as Randy, Madison Pullins as Miss Shields, Thomas Hart Boeing as Adult Ralphie/Narrator, Peter Waning as Flick, Noah Jeffreys as Schwartz, Ruthie Darnell as Esther Jane, Clare Graff as Helen & Mitchell Wolking as Scut Farkas

“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”   Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in 1940’s Indiana, follows Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case to his mother, his teacher and Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt’s Department Store. All the elements from the beloved movie are here – the family’s temperamental furnace, the school bully Scut Farkas, the boys’ bet concerning a wet tongue on an icy lamppost, the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring;  and Ralphie’s father winning “a major award” – the lady’s leg lamp in a fishnet stocking! A Christmas Story has become a theatrical holiday classic!
