[singlepic=5,240,180,,left]As the new Artistic Director at the showboat, Patrick has directed and designed that classic tale of Ralphie’s quest to obtain an official legendary Red Ryder….BB Gun. The cast consisted of mostly local actors from the Clinton, IA area. The show’s set consisted of a dual level house and an outside area for the famous chase scenes. Also a custom slide highlights the visit to santa. The children in the show reached new levels of acting and were able to create characters that had some of the movie’s flair along with making unique choices for this production. The play overall was a success for the showboat and they anticipate more holiday shows in the future and a successful summer season.
