Rudolph is coming straight from the screen to the stage in a family-friendly adaptation of the popular television special.
In 1964, the beloved stop-motion animated television classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, made its network television debut delighting audiences across the country. Fifty years later, the longest running and highest rated television special comes to life, live on stage with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical, featuring the world’s most famous reindeer and a holly jolly cast of iconic characters. Rudolph and friends, including Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and the Abominable Snow Monster, help Santa save Christmas this holiday season.
Rudolph and friends are arriving at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center Shubert Theatre for 12 performances, from December 9-14, 2014. Tickets are now on sale at www.citicenter.org or by calling (866) 348-9738.
Is it the same as the television special? Yes! Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical is very faithful to the original show – including songs, characters, and nostalgic set designs.
The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of the appearance of his bright, shining nose, is ousted from the reindeer games in Christmas-town. He flees town, meets up with new friends Hermey and Yukon, and a series of funny and endearing adventures ensue including a visit to The Island of Misfit Toys. Rudolph journeys home, where a snowstorm of epic proportions is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph save his family and friends and help Santa save the holiday?
The production will also participate in the #ShineBright social media campaign which is a celebration of uniqueness that will be championed by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Workshops, lesson plans and special performances will use the story as a platform for teaching important lessons.
