The Christmas Story was well done with one exception. Even though I heard good comments about the role of Ralph (the adult) this Sun. Dec. 19 at the 2 PM performance, I think that he was a distraction and actually took away from the dramatic affect of the acting.
I would suggest that you consider having his role strictly as a voice-over reading from backstage. It would improve the play tremendously.
I plan to attend the show again next year and hope you will make this change. Try it, and you will see that I am right.
