UPDATE: The winner will be announced at 12:30 instead of 12:00 (I forgot that today is an early release day so I'll be picking up my kids at 12:00. Also, The Dec. 7 show sold out before our tickets were pulled, so DPAC let me know the tickets are now available for the Dec. 8 show at 7 p.m. We apologize for this inconvenience.
In association with Hot Summer Nights, Broadway Series South will present the holiday classic "A Christmas Story," Dec. 7–24 in A.J. Fletcher Opera Theater at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. Written by Jean Shepherd and adapted by Philip Grecian, "A Christmas Story" follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. All elements from the motion picture are included in the show.
You can win two tickets to the opening night show Tues., Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. from Triangle TRACKS and Broadway Series South by posting "A Christmas Story" moment in our comments section below.
