A Christmas Story Christmas: Ralphie Grows Up


“You’ll shoot your eye out.”

If you immediately recognize this line, you might be one of the 40 million Americans who tune in every year for at least part of the 24-hour marathon of “A Christmas Story.” The 1983 film had a modest start, but over the decades has grown into one of the most popular Christmas movies of all time.

And now, nearly 40 years later, for the first time ever Peter Billingsley reprises his role of Ralphie in a sequel called “A Christmas Story Christmas.”

Join the fun as Ashley and Candy first revisit the original movie, sharing little-known facts about the beloved holiday classic, then their reactions after watching the sequel. We triple dog dare ya!

Ashley is an award-winning Independent Filmmaker from Northern Kentucky. Her first film, “No Lost Cause” is currently internationally distributed and was recently featured on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network). Her memoir recalling her experience creating a film on a micro budget, “The Why Not Philosophy or How We Learned to Let Go, Trust God and Defeat the Raptors,” was released February 2015 and is available on Amazon.com. Her second feature film, “The Hepburn Girls” was released on Amazon.com and Vimeo.com in the summer of 2016. Ashley is also a long-time lover of all things theatre and in the spring of 2014, she helped found and became the Vice-President of the theatre company, “The Theatre Downstream.” Their first large scale summer musical, “Beauty and the Beast” was awarded Best Musical (Local), Best Actor in a Musical (Local), Best Actress in a Musical (Local), and Best Set Design by the BroadwayWorld Louisville awards in 2016, and their 2017 production of "Annie" sold over 2,100 tickets, a company record-breaking number! No matter what the project, Ashley is happiest when she is able to bring talented people and their art together for the consumption and appreciation of the public. While her taste remains vintage, she is grateful for the technology of the modern world and the opportunity to share her thoughts, aspirations, and misadventures. Her lofty dreams are to create things that people remember and to one day own an alpaca. Above all, she loves God, her family, her friends, her cats, and brownies.
