Though Peter currently works as a Hollywood producer, he hasn’t hung up his black-framed glasses and bunny suit for good! Fans got to relieve the holiday classic in 2010 when he brought his childhood role onto the stage for A Christmas Story: The Musical!.

At the time he revealed, “The film brings a lot of joy to a lot of people,” adding, “I always get asked, ‘Aren’t you over it?’ But I’m not.”

Honestly, neither are we!
