In the fictional 1940s Indiana world of “A Christmas Story,” the weather outside is so frightful, a little boy’s tongue gets frozen to a flagpole when he gives it a lick.

But this Sunday evening, when “A Christmas Story” becomes the latest musical performed live on Fox Television, the actors will likely be sweating in their parkas on the Warner Brothers back lot in Burbank. The forecast for that day is for a high of 72 degrees.

Among the boys starring in Sunday’s live broadcast is 12-year-old Noah Baird of Carlsbad. The home-schooled sixth-grader has spent much of the past four years shuttling back and fourth between sunny Southern California and snowy Manhattan, where he spent more than two years in the Broadway cast of “Matilda the Musical” and the New York production of “A Christmas Story.”
