Originally airing in 1964, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is the longest-running Christmas television special. Inspired by Robert L. May’s story and the infamous song by Johnny Marks, the story has warmed the hearts of families for over 50 years. Just in time for the holidays, the critically acclaimed live stage show Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical returns to theatres across the country.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical has performed more than 600 times over the past seven years and will return for its national tour this Fall and Winter. Starring the most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph and his friends Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius, and Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster will help Santa save Christmas.
The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of his bright, shining nose, is excluded from the Reindeer Games. Rudolph flees Christmastown and meets up with new friends Hermey the Elf and Yukon Cornelius. After finding The Island of Misfit Toys, Rudolph journeys home, where an epic snowstorm is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph rescue his family and friends and help Santa save Christmas?
Staying true to the original television special, Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer: The Musical features projections, costumes, and characters that are faithfully brought to the stage against a backdrop of nostalgic set designs. The 12-foot-plus-tall Abominable Snow Monster is absolutely impressive. The talented cast brings high energy to classic songs and dialogue, while loveable puppets highlight the charming roughness of the television show’s stop-motion effects. Seeing the musical as a family is a wonderful way to experience the nostalgia of the television special live on-stage.
