There was a time when my family would religiously gather around the TV every Dec. 25 to watch A Christmas Story. The Jean Shepherd-penned classic spoke to our Midwestern roots, kind of like a red-and-green "Married ... With Children." We all have our favorite line. (Mine is probably when the dad happens upon his mysterious prize-box and exclaims in wonderment, "Fra-gi-lay—it must be Italian!") Enjoy that and other classic scenes in Albuquerque Little Theatre's production of the beloved film, adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian. And watch out for the Bumpus hounds! Tonight’s performance is at 8 p.m. at Albuquerque Little Theatre (224 San Pasquale SW).

Auditions will take place Saturday, Dec. 17, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Split Vision Studios (300-A Aspen Road). For audition time and sides, please email your pics and résumés to director Holly Adams at email@example.com. For more details, go to nmactingstudio.com/Auditions.aspx.
