Next Meetup

It's that time again! Culture!!
A Christmas Story is humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the Midwest of the 1940s. It follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out." 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. Sherman Players is offering Half-Price Preview Night on Thursday, November 29. Tickets are only $12.00 per person. There are no advance sales for preview night. It's first come, first served so let's plan to be there at 7:30, a half hour before showtime. We'll meet 5:00 PM for a light dinner at the American Pie Company, 29 Route 37S, Sherman. Hope to see you there. The cost of this Meetup is $2.00.
