- Page 1

On December 17th, you'll be able to watch your favorite Christmas movie on TV, only this time it will be live!

Fox is at it once again, putting on a live production of A Christmas Story. They jumped on the live musical bandwagon in 2016, with their version of Grease. The reviews were solid, so now they want to see how far they can push their luck.

For those of you who don't know A Christmas Story (where have you been for the last 34 years?), the movie is about nine-year-old Ralphie Parker and his family, who are just trying to get through the holiday season without any major disasters. The movie takes place in the 1940s, but it stands the test of time. All Ralphie wants is a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle and he'll stop at nothing to get it.

Variety

The movie was such a classic, it was turned into a Broadway musical in 2012. It garnered three Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical. The live TV production will be based off both the movie and the Broadway show, and will feature some new songs.

But the most important question we need to ask: who will actually be in this production? Fox finally filled us in, and it's kind of unexpected.
