This musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others!

Miss Evers Boys is a fictionalized account of the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male that took place in Macon County, Alabama. From 1932 to 1972, hundreds of poor black men suffering from “bad blood” were given mercury and arsenic, a treatment that worked if it didn’t kill the patient, until funding ran out. The diligent Nurse Evers is faced with a difficult decision: to tell the men that they are no longer being treated, or follow the lead of her superiors and the tenets of the nursing profession. David Felshuh's riveting drama explores still-relevant topics such as medical ethics, prejudice, misogyny, classism, black, white and the areas in between.
We are seeking a cast of 7 actors to bring this classic story to life. This production of Miss Evers Boys will feature the actors playing live 'found instruments' such as washboard, spoons, trashcans, vocal arrangements and harmonica. MUSICAL PERFORMERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

We are excited to announce our Take Your Seat Fundraiser Campaign at the Pearl Theater. Back in 2010, with a little more than a few hundred dollars, we purchased our current seating and installed what was to be temporary, rudimentary lighting instruments. While we are proud of the many great accomplishments we have achieved with such humble beginnings, we are constantly seeking ways to fulfill our mission to provide a comfortable atmosphere for patrons and a creative home for artists. With your participation, we will be able to greatly increase the seating comfort of our patrons by installing brand new seating as well as allow our theatre artists more creativity and freedom when designing for productions by expanding our lighting capabilities.
Although in good condition when we purchased them, our current seats had already been used in their previous home for a number of years. Currently, many of our seats are broken, missing pieces, or simply beyond repair. Moreover, our limited lighting grid severely hinders the creative abilities of our directors and designers who strive to deliver the highest production values to our community.
By purchasing one or more seats, you will be able to become a permanent part of our artistic community. When you Take Your Seat, you will have the opportunity to have your name or dedication inscribed on a nameplate and installed on the seat of your choice.
Your donation is fully tax deductible and you will have our never ending gratitude for the support you show to the arts in our community and the Pearl Theater.
Please see our complete brochure available at the Pearl Theater, or contact us to request by mail.
