Jonesborough Repertory Theatre Presents A Christmas Story Dec. 4 - 20


Nothing sparks the holiday spirit like a few childhood memories! Experience Christmas through the eyes of a child once more with Jean Shepherd’s A Christmas Story playing at Jonesborough Repertory Theatre this December.

 

JRT is proud to bring this family favorite to three-dimensional life on the stage with Philip Grecian’s creative adaptation of the classic holiday film.

 

Come see Ralphie (Sam Ledbetter) and friends (Elliott Childress, Jeb Jones, Sophia Wabshall, Eliza Ledbetter) in the flesh as they go from misadventure to imaginative misadventure! Whatever your favorite Christmas Story scene, “mommy’s little piggy,” Flick’s tongue stuck to a pole, or the “pink nightmare,” you’ll find that recognizable scenes and beloved characters abound in this nostalgic peek back in time to 1940s small town America.

 

As Ralph (Tim Reynolds) masterfully performs Jean Shepherd’s comedic narration, Ralphie gets into hilarious situations and learns valuable lessons from his teacher (Jules Corriere), the neighborhood bully (Jake Jones), his little brother Randy (Wolfram Hunter), his mother (Lorriane Carver) and “The Old Man” (Roger Cassell).

 

Ralphie’s experiences are sure to conjure the Christmas spirit and get laughs from anyone who is, or ever has been, a kid with a big imagination.

 

A Christmas Story is directed by Heather Knudtsen and produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.

  Jonesborough Parade Dedicated to “Winter Nights and Christmas Lights," Dec. 13

Christmas is fast-approaching and the Town of Jonesborough is gearing up for another festive season.  Christmas provides the opportunity to celebrate all things near and dear to us and to spend time with all of our loved ones.  What better opportunity to spend time with family and friends than to grab a cup of hot chocolate, don the mittens and hats and gather on Main Street in downtown Jonesborough to watch the annual lighted nighttime Christmas Parade.

The Jonesborough The Parks and Recreation Department is proud to bring you the 2014 Jonesborough Christmas Parade.  The theme this year is “Winter Nights and Christmas Lights.” The department is accepting all entries and is especially interested in live music, floats lit with Christmas lights, horses (only those that are well-controlled in large crowd situations) and antique cars.  Every entrant is asked to decorate their float/entry around the “Winter Nights and Christmas Lights” theme and the incorporation of music (live or not) as well as lights with each float/entry are encouraged. Prizes for the parade are also judged around these elements.  
 

The parade will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 13th on Boone Street and will progress to Main Street and Historic Downtown, ending at the Washington Avenue intersection. 

Visit jonesboroughtn.org for an entry form, or call 423-791-3869.
