There are just some things that make Christmas complete! One of our family’s musts is Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Whether we are watching it on tv or heading out to a play featuring those lovable characters, my family can’t miss Rudolph. It wouldn’t be Christmas without a few reindeer games! With a performance so bright, some might even say it glows! Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ is flying to the Center for Puppetry Arts once again this holiday season! The classic tale will be presented in the Mainstage Theater, through December 29. The holiday spectacular was adapted by Jon Ludwig and is directed by Tim Sweeney. Based on the timeless 1964 stop-motion animated television special, this must-see show is a favorite for all ages. Rudolph the Red Nosed-Reindeer™ is filled with adventure, friendship and bound to bring joy to all this bright and merry season!
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
My family recently had the opportunity of getting our hearts ready for the approaching holiday season by seeing the Center for Puppetry Arts bring this classic to life through puppets! One thing that I just could not stop admiring was how character like the puppets were! Guess what? They were even made at the Center! Every time I would gaze upon the stage, I seriously was in awe of the skills of the puppet builders and puppeteers. They are truly amazing! I seriously felt like the movie was playing out right before my eyes!

Patrons will watch in wonder as the North Pole truly comes to life through the use of rod and body puppets. Sam the Snowman™ will once again narrate the beloved tale of unlikely friendship formed among Rudolph™, Hermey the Elf™, Yukon Cornelius™ and all of the magnificent misfit toys. While narrowly escaping the grips of Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster™ and braving perilous blizzards, their journey is sure to warm hearts as the friends learn the importance of being true to one’s self and accepting others along the way. Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerTM is recommended for ages 4 and up.
All-inclusive tickets to all shows also include entrance to the Create-A-Puppet Workshop™, where guests can make and decorate their own Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ Shadow Puppet, as well as admission to the Worlds of Puppetry Museum.
Worlds of Puppetry Museum
While you are there, you have got to check out the Worlds of Puppetry Museum. It is such a fascinating area of the museum where you can see all kinds of puppets from throughout the ages. Within the museum, there are several spots for great pictures and hands-on activities for the little ones to enjoy.
Don’t forget to stop by the Create-A-Puppet Workshop. This season you can make your own Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ Shadow Puppet. Children and adults can then hop on over to the Center’s classroom stage to perform with their puppet!
