Peter Billingsley, the original Ralphie Parker in the much-loved holiday film "A Christmas Story," is executive producing a musical adaption of the film.

"'A Christmas Story' has always meant a lot to me personally," Billingsley told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm excited to bring this film to the stage because the story and the characters lend themselves so well to the world of musicals."

The show, playing at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre, and running through Dec. 30, is said to remain true to the film version. This isn't Billingsley's first time producing; he's credited as executive producer for "Iron Man" and "Four Christmases."
