Thursday, December 16, 2010
6:00 PM-7:00 PM
Providence Public Library
150 Empire Street (Barnard Room, 3rd Floor)
Providence, RI 02903
A new holiday show from Living Literature, this is a 40-minute version of Jean Shepherd's "Duel in the Snow, or Red Rider Nails the Cleveland Street Kid" upon which the 1983 classic movie, A Christmas Story, was based. The story relates the comic tale of the mid-western, Depression-era child who yearns for an official Red Ryder air rifle for Christmas.
Living Literature performers Kelly Nichols and Artistic Director, Barry Press, will perform this presentation made possible by a grant from the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.
