Child Chosen to Perform A Christmas Story at San Angelo Broadway Academy


SAN ANGELO – Since September, more than 50 children have worked hard to prepare for their biggest show, which will celebrate Christmas, family and overcome lost expectations.

Students at San Angelo Broadway Academy are excited to perform “A Christmas Story,” the classic holiday tale that follows Ralphie, a boy who desperately wants the most popular toy in demand. The story is set in 1940s Indiana and takes the audience into the life of the Tucker family.

“It’s a story about how sometimes we have that perfect shot… and life jumps in the way and you have to roll with the punches,” director Angela Brooks said. “At the end of the day, you still have your family and that’s what’s important.”

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Elta Joyce Murphey Performance Hall. People can buy tickets at

What went into this musical?

The show features 55 children in the cast, ages 8-18, and 15 working on technical equipment. For some of them, this will be their first production, and it’s a challenge.

“There are 150 costumes, quick transitions, and four-part harmonies,” Brooks said. “The show is non-stop, fast paced and you never get bored.”

Part of the room setup included building a house with electricity. Brooks mentioned that although this is youth theater, audiences should expect professional quality.

“These kids worked so hard to bring the gift of theater to San Angelo,” she said. “There is so much heart and love in this production.”

Brooks hopes people will come to enjoy the Christmas spirit.

“This is a great time to go out with the family and watch a show about a happy moment in life,” she said. “Get out there and let the magic take over you. “
