In 2017 and 2018 I played “The Old Man” (Ralphie’s Dad) in “A Christmas Story, the Musical” for the national tour!
I loved being a part of this show.

…here are excerpts from our reviews….
“The real find for this tour was Paul Nobrega…he is nearly perfect as The Old Man.”
“As Ralphie’s father (aka the Old Man) Paul Nobrega is wonderfully goofy, and comically prideful, as he sings and dances his way through ‘The Genius on Cleveland Street’ and ‘A Major Award.’ It is a stellar performance”

“If I would have closed my eyes, I would have thought Paul Nobrega was same guy who played the old man in the movie as he said “Fra-gee-le.”
In “A Major Award,” Paul Nobrega takes center stage with his contest win, the sensuous Lady Leg lamp, in a rousing Busby Berkeley-like performance where even the Leg gets to kick its heel. The scene explodes with colors, and Nobrega’s triumph of the ego is captured in every dance step.
