Rehearsals are now underway for A Christmas Story Live. Inspired by the holiday classic film A Christmas Story and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical A Christmas Story: The Musical, this season’s live musical television event is coming to Fox December 17.

A Christmas Story Live! stars two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick as the narrator and the grown-up version of Ralphie Parker, alongside Emmy nominee Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live) as Mrs. Parker and Andy Walken as Ralphie.

Take an exclusive look at the rehearsals for the upcoming live broadcast below:

All Ralphie wants for Christmas is a BB gun, and in the weeks leading up to December 25, Ralphie and his friends get into all kinds of trouble—including run-ins with a bully, getting his tongue stuck to a flagpole, and more.

The cast of A Christmas Story Live also features Tony winner Jane Krakowsi (Nine), Emmy nominee Chris Diamantopoulos (Waitress), and Ana Gasteyer (Wicked).

Tony, Golden Globe, and Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land) are writing several new songs for the live television event to supplement their musical’s original score. Eight-time Tony nominee Scott Ellis will direct on the stage—and serve as an executive producer—while Alex Rudzinski (an Emmy winner for Grease: Live) will serve as live television director and an executive producer.

Tune in to the live broadcast December 17 at 7 PM ET. For more information visit,
