A Christmas Story Featured on Inside Out Nashville Cover!
Nashville Repertory Theatre was featured on Inside Out Nashville Magazine's cover for the month of December! Check out their website here and here's a direct link to the magazine PDF. Our article is on Page 3.
And now a few words from Shane, our New Media/Marketing Coordinator, about his inspiration for designing the cover.
I was completely excited about making the cover for Inside Out Magazine. I started as the new graphic designer for Nashville Rep finishing out the 2011/2012 Season in someone else's shoes. This year I've had more of a chance to flex my creative muscles and felt this was a perfect project for to break the mold! A Christmas Story is an iconic cult classic that conjures many images: the BB gun, the Leg Lamp, broken glasses, etc. Nashville Rep choose the image of Samuel Whited in the pink bunny costume to brand our staged version of this classic into minds of Nashville's patrons. So I took a cue from the original artwork from A Christmas Story DVD. Being that it's the 25th Anniversary of the movie, I figured many stocking would be filled with copies of the movie. I combined images from our production into a similar backdrop of the DVD cover creating a image that was instantly recognized as A Christmas Story. Previous covers that we did where mostly black background, which isn't a color normally associated with Christmas. We all are really happy with the fun, festive take on a Christmas classic and I personally cannot wait to do another cover for Inside Out Nashville! Here's to hoping they will let us me do one for Cabaret!
Play Synopsis: Nashville’s Newest Holiday Tradition! Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his unflappable campaign to get Santa (or anyone else) to give him a “legendary official Red Rider carbine-action 200 shot range-model air rifle.” Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher, and even Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out.” This irresistible piece of Americana is guaranteed to warm the heart and tickle the funny bone.
