The animated television classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer made its television debut in 1964 and has become the longest running and highest rated television special. It will return live on stage when Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical makes its Philadelphia premiere Dec 17 – 20 at the Merriam Theater as part of Broadway Philadelphia. Broadway Philadelphia is presented collaboratively by the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and the Shubert Organization. Performances are at 7:00 pm on Dec. 17 and 18, with 3 performances on Sat. Dec. 19 and Sunday Dec 20 at 11:00 am, 2:00 pm and 5:30 pm. The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who isn’t allowed to play any Reindeer games because of his shiny red nose. He runs away and meets new friends and has a series of funny adventures. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical virtually whisks the audience into the production as songs drive the plot while familiar set designs characters and costumes come to the stage via projections. Added to all of this is a talented cast and puppeteers to help create the magic on stage. The production will benefit PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
