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 play was awful. It was very boring and horribly tedious.
It wasn't the actors - they did the best they could with this schlock script. After an hour that seemed like 3, we mercifully escaped during intermission.
By far, the worst community theater I've seen in 5 years.

In this unforgettable play, a young boy tells the story of growing up in a fatherless home, raised by his unmarried mother and his four spinster aunts in 1930's Ireland.
