Iconic festive film A Christmas Story has been converted into a musical.
The holiday production, choreographed by Warren Carlyle - the man behind Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway - has set out on a five-city tour across the U.S. to determine how a "brand-new show with no track record" appeals to audiences, according to producer Jerry Goehring.
Child star-turned-director Peter Billingsley, who played the role of 12-year-old Ralphie Parker in the 1983 classic, also serves as a producer on the project.
The show will end its current run in Chicago, Illinois on 30 December (11), but producers hope to stage the production in New York next year (12).
