Rudy and his friends light up the stage in this exciting new musical adaptation of the holiday TV special that celebrates the misfit in all of us. From Rudolph, the reindeer who tries to hide his very shiny nose before he realizes he can save Santa's Christmas, to his pals Clarice, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and even the Abominable Snowman, this song-filled, large-scale extravaganza brings their unforgettable adventures to life. In addition to the classic title song by Johnny Marks, the original soundtrack boasts great tunes like "There's Always Tomorrow," "We're a Couple of Misfits," "Silver and Gold," "A Holly Jolly Christmas" and more.

This was one of the best plays I have seen, it makes you laugh, and cry, but mostly think. What would have been going through this great man's mind knowing the death threats could come true any day? What would he want his legacy to be? Would he be scared, or defiant that he won't be able to fulfill his dream? Katori Hall gives us her interpretation of his last thoughts, with a twist, that will have you leaping from your seat for a standing ovation.
This production contains simulated cigarette smoking with a water-vapor device.
Running time is 90 minutes. There's no intermission.
About the Ticket Supplier: Court Theatre
Since the Court's founding in 1955 at the University of Chicago, its work has been inspired by the belief that classic theatre illuminates the stories and themes that are timely and timeless. Each one of the theatre company's provocative productions has guided its artists and audiences on an exploration into the vast human consciousness, and has created a timeline that connects the present to the past. Theatre, and classic theatre in particular, gives us insight into the past, understanding of our present, and directs us toward our future.
