Don’t shoot your eye out: Cary Players present ‘A Christmas Story’

December 2, 2013 

By now, the story is familiar: Ralphie Parker wants a Red Ryder air rifle, and all sorts of nonsense ensues.

The Cary Players Community Theatre will present “A Christmas Story” at the Cary Arts Center on Dec. 5-9.

This is the sixth time the theater troupe has put on the popular show.

“Each year we add something new to the props, costumes or set, but the story remains as (writer) Jean Shepherd crafted it,” director Debra Grannan said in a statement. “It’s amazing how different a show can be when new actors bring a fresh perspective to the roles each year.”

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday; 3 p.m. Sunday; and 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for students and seniors. For tickets, go to, or visit the Cary Arts Center box office at 101 Dry Ave.

Cary Players and the Heart of Cary Association will collect new, unwrapped toys in the lobby before each show.
