Christmas joy continues at the Beekay

Tehachapi Community Theatre Spotlight


December 3, 2022


The Tehachapi Community Theatre Association (TCTA) is thrilled to offer a final weekend package of performances, featuring two evening shows and two matinees of the much loved "A Christmas Story" by Jean Shepherd.

The large cast remains super-excited to be performing in such a nostalgic and warmhearted family Christmas story, set in 1950s middle-America. The kids love experiencing the joy that comes from playing to nearly sell-out crowds.

"Live theater is a gift of give-and-take shared on both sides of the footlights. The more response from the audience, the more the players sparkle, delight and give back," said Chris Morales, TCT Executive Producer.

This year, the play is on everybody's mind because Ralpie's old home recently made the news. It has been sold and the new owners have opened it to the public with guided tours and a gift shop. Warner Brothers has produced a sequel: "A Christmas Story Christmas," with Peter Billingsley, the original Ralphie, coming back to visit his hometown in the 1970s. Start your Christmas Story experience at the BeeKay Theatre at 110 S. Green St., Tehachapi, this weekend and get in the spirit of Christmas.

"It's a thrill to be on stage watching your audience come to life as they give their full attention to the story and respond with applause and laughter without the aid of any laugh track or commercial break,"said Korina Coghain, who plays Ralphie's teacher, Mrs. Shields.

P.S. There is even a raffle for that infamous leg lamp. See the show and buy a ticket for the raffle. You might be the biggest winner of all in this happy holiday season.

Dec. 9, 10, 16, 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Dec. 10, 11, 17, 18 matinees at 2 p.m.
