A musical stage version of the classic film "A Christmas Story" has found a home on Broadway.

Producers said Thursday that "Christmas Story, The Musical!" will play the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre from Nov. 5 to Dec. 30. The musical spent much of last year on a national tour.

The show has more than a dozen catchy songs written by Benj Pasek and composer Justin Paul, with titles including "Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun" and "A Major Award."

The show represents Pasek and Paul's Broadway debut. They made their New York debut this summer with "Dogfight" at Second Stage Theatre.

Both the 1983 film and musical are based the story of 9-year-old Ralphie Parker's desperate attempt to land an air rifle as a Christmas gift, despite warnings that he'll shoot his eye out.
