Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie Parker in the Christmas classic, A Christmas Story is set to turn the movie into a musical.

“A Christmas Story has always meant a lot to me personally,” says Billingsley. “I’m excited to bring this film to the stage because the story and the characters lend themselves so well to the world of musicals.” Previews will begin on Wednesday at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre (and running Dec. 9-30), A Christmas Story: The Musical! will remain loyal to the film adaptation of Jean Shepherd’s short stories and includes an original score from Broadway composing duo Benj Paske and Justin Paul.
