SHN—A Christmas Story, The Musical - December 10th

Thursday, December 10, 2015—7:30pm

SHN Orpheum Theatre
1192 Market St.
San Francisco, CA 94102

A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Air Rifle (“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”). An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. Chock-full of delightful songs and splashy production numbers, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL has proudly taken its place as a perennial holiday classic for the whole family.

Come join alums from the U of M Club of San Francisco and the U of M Club of Silicon Valley at this exciting new Broadway musical. There are only 20 tickets, so don't miss out on this great opportunity!

AAUM Members: $55
Non-Members: $65
