Get your pink bunny pajamas ready y’all, because a live, musical version of A Christmas Story is headed to Fox just in time for the holidays!

A Christmas Story: The Musical, boasts an all-star cast including 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski as Ralphie's teacher, Silicon Valley's Chris Diamantopoulos as Ralphie's dad, Saturday Night Live’s Maya Rudolph as his mother, and the one-and-only Matthew Broderick as the narrator. Break-out child actor Andy Walken, 11, will star as Ralphie, the awkward young boy at the center of the holiday classic who wants nothing more than to find a Red Ryder air rifle under the tree.

 

This winter, the most beloved Christmas movie of all-time becomes the season’s biggest television event! A Christmas Story LIVE is coming to FOX December 17. 🎁🎄
