Arts and Culture


The holiday season is a time when our thoughts turn to how thankful we are for family and friends, peace and goodwill, and the Official Red Ryder Carbine Action Two Hundred Shot Range Model Air Rifle (with a compass and this thing that tells time built right into the stock).

That last reference is, of course, from Jean Shepherd’s A Christmas Story. The stage adaption of that holiday classic is being produced for the final time this season at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
Friday on Byline, WFPL’s Erin Keane spoke with actress Jessica Wortham, who plays Ralphie’s mother in the production.
Laura produces Curious Louisville, Strange Fruit, and other audio news stories for WFPL.
