Again Michael Golebiewski brought another great stage production to the Roane State theatre. This time it was "A Christmas Story", written by Philip Grecian, based on the stories by Jean Shepherd. There was a large turnout for the play Friday evening, or it could have been for Michael's famous dessert offerings at intermission!
The story is all about Ralphie Parker, played wonderfully by Caleb Wright, a 7th grader at Cherokee Middle School, who only wants one thing for Christmas. Ralphie not only obsesses about during is waking moments, but day and night dreams about becoming a neighborhood hero using a Red Ryder BB gun.
Caleb was also a gentlemen off stage. I touched his shoulder on the way out and told him that he had done a great job, and the young man, still dressed in his silk robe after coming off the stage, said smilingly, "Oh thank you sir!"
