Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB
gun under the tree for Christmas. All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut
Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp
shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday classic.

here to see the Cast and Crew!
The Historic State Theater and Hardin County Playhouse have partnered to present the musical, Heroicus. In this family friendly
musical, action figures and dolls come to life as a father and daughter play out an epic adventure in their living-room. The
daughter takes on the role of her doll, Baby Branchflower, who must steal a magic guitar from three witches, who live inside a
volcano. If the despicable villain, Dastardly Dan doesn’t have it by sunrise, she will never see her parents again. Along the way
she must find a hero. For only a hero can play the magic guitar and stop Dastardly Dan from taking over the world.

Come enjoy this family friendly show, the first collaboration between Hardin County Playhouse and the Historic State Theater.
Heroicus features an oversized set, a funny script, a fantastic cast, and catchy songs. It also contains some great lessons for
children, such as overcoming adversity using teamwork, loyalty to your friends and family, and finding the hero inside of
yourself. If you are a child, know a child, are the parent of a child, or were ever a child yourself, you will love Heroicus.

Performances are November 3rd at 7pm and November 4 at 2 & 7pm.

Tickets: Adults $10, Youth $5

To purchase tickets, please visit the Historic State Theater's office at 209 West Dixie Ave., or call 270-234-8258. Tickets are
also available at  the door.
