Better than the movie it was based on! Performers were excellent, as was the staging, singing and choreography. Bravo to the young composers who wrote such tuneful music, and some near-showstoppers!

Great acting and singing. We all enjoyed the show. A little more dialog and a couple less songs would have been better.

A great family event. Probably 30 minutes too long but a great show nonetheless.

Numbers in first act were too long. I got bored. Second act better than first. Like most of these stage productions ripped off from movies, the movie is way better.

This was a great family outing for us. The scenes were amazing and the talent was impressive. The adaptation was very close to the movie making it easy for the children to stay tuned and follow along. A fantastic Christmas family memory!

This was a really fun show with good music, although no memorable tunes. The performances were outstanding and I was really impressed with the entire cast, especially the kids and the lead (Ralphie). Perfect for the whole family. I bet folks will...continued

Very enjoyable and mostly true to the movie. A few less songs (and shorter length) would make me want to take the smaller grandchildren. We were glad we went!

Both myself and the two friends I went with really liked it. The kid who plays Ralphy has an incredible voice! We were impressed. I also really enjoyed the father's character. The show stayed very true to the movie which I always like when it's a...continued

I really enjoyed the musical...Ralphie and his father were smashingly good. Thumbs up to the balance of the cast and the great sets!

The casting and actors were superb, and the "Major Award" number was the best.

Choreography could use some work, and the play was a little bit long. It could be tightened up.

I'd suggest that the adult "Ralphie" appear as a silhouette behind...continued

Took our three kids - ages 4, 10, and 12. Our 4 year old got tired and restless by the end but everyone enjoyed the show. I do agree with other reviewers that it is on the long side - some of the lesser scenes could definitely be cut. The kids...continued

We very much enjoyed the production. If you don't leave in the Holiday spirit, there is no hope for you! Some tightening of the lyrics, along with a few tweaks of the number of scenes, will help move this production along to Broadway. ...continued
