Not long ago, I told you how much I loved the theater: ballet, plays, and musicals. I enjoy all of it. A live performance is such an amazing experience. The Boy enjoyed his first musical a few weeks ago and I know he’s going to be thrilled when I tell him that we’re going to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical at the Citi Shubert Theater in a few weeks!
This is a wonderful family-friendly event to kick off the Christmas season and get us all excited for the magic of the holidays.
Fifty years ago, the beloved stop-motion animated television classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, made its network television debut delighting audiences across the country. Now 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.
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?
I always loved Yukon Cornelius and Hermey the Elf. Though they weren’t the stars, they did steal the show for me!
