The Cast Of "A Christmas Story, Live!" Has Been Revealed

- 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.


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.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the


KB Toys Announces Their Comeback After Toys 'R' Us Declares Bankruptcy

After we were all devastated by the news that our childhood heaven Toys 'R' Us was closing down, we thought that nothing could make our inner child happy. Honestly, Toys 'R' Us was the coolest place to go when you were little, and it sucks knowing that we won't be able to bring our kids there one day. But wait! There was one place that we loved going to just as much as Toys 'R' Us, maybe even more. KB Toys was the competitor to the popular brand, and while they went out of business in 2009, they are now


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a
