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.

The only good thing about this show was the work of the students.
The play, if you can call it that, or musical, if you can call it that, was just horrible. Choppy, mixed time frames, unappealing music, terrible choreography, disjoint between what's happening in the narrative and the so-called supporting musical numbers. Plus, did I mention, the subject matter is not really awakening of sexuality, but includes child abuse and choreography and physical movements that are waaaay too specific and suggestive, including a masturbation scene. I am not a prude, and so to me it seems like they had to find SOMETHING to make this appealing and threw in everything. And then, they felt they could say to people like me how small-minded and conservative I am. And I'm NOT...I go to see everything and anything, and this was just terrible, terrible, terrible. How very sad for Northwestern, and how contemptuous the person in charge was to throw this at the audience. Other people left at intermission when I did, and I'm sure some just suffered through, like the season ticketholders next to me who tentatively said to me that "it was different."
Due to adult situations and mature content, parental supervision/discretion is recommended for ages 18 and younger.
