The Family-Friendly Stage Adaptation of CBS’ Highest-Rated Christmas Special of All Time returns to Dallas-Fort Worth for a limited holiday engagement
The “most famous reindeer of all” from the longest-running and highest rated holiday television special will be live on stage with the critically acclaimed RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER: This fun family classic will play at the Music Hall at Fair Park November 25-27, for five performances presented by Dallas Summer Musicals.
Following two successful years of touring North America, the world’s most famous reindeer and a holly jolly cast of iconic characters, including Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and the Abominable Snow Monster, will help Santa save Christmas.
In 1964, the beloved stop-motion animated television classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, made its network television debut, delighting audiences across the country. “RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER: THE MUSICAL is rapidly becoming a tradition for generations of children and adults and we are so excited to bring the show to fans in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex,” says producing partner Jonathan Flom.
Projections, costumes and characters are faithfully brought to the stage against a backdrop of nostalgic set designs. The cast brings high energy to classic songs and dialogue, while irresistible and loveable puppets highlight the charming “roughness” from the television show’s stop-motion effects.
Flom says, “We address all of the familiar story elements from the television special with a talented cast and puppeteers who help recreate the magic on stage. Since the special itself is a classic musical, the stage show does not feel at all like an adaptation and audiences are surprised and delighted when they hear full performances of additional iconic songs associated with the TV special, such as “Fame and Fortune” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”
The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of the appearance of his bright shining nose, is excluded from the Reindeer Games. He flees Christmas town and meets up with new friends Hermey the Elf and Yukon Cornelius. After finding The Island of Misfit Toys, Rudolph journeys home where a snowstorm of epic proportions is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph rescue his family and friends and help Santa save the holiday?
Rudolph’s partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center continues this year.
I loved the puppets, the Snowman, and all the elements....there is ice, snow, and magic in this presentation.
Take your children and their toys to see Santa, his elves, and Rudolph!!
