About The Event
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer JR. is based on the animated television special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”adapted from a story by Robert L. May featuring music and lyrics by Johnny Marks. The musical tells the story of Rudolph, a young reindeer born with a very shiny nose (some might even say it glows). Thinking only “normal” reindeer have a chance to make the elite team pulling Santa’s sleigh, Rudolph’s parents encourage their young buck to conceal his blinking beacon. When Rudolph’s peers and superiors discover his secret, the reindeer is snubbed by his community and excluded from participating in the very reindeer games that train Santa’s sled team. Downcast, Rudolph meets a young Elf named Hermey who doesn’t fit in either. Hermey dreams of someday becoming a dentist instead of working in Santa’s toyshop, which is what everyone expects of him. The two misfits set out on an adventure, find fellowship with other outcasts, and return home to the North Pole just as foul weather threatens to cancel Christmas. Everyone must work together to save Christmas, and they that their diversity can save the day.
