“Rudolph” the musical soars into Rutland, kicking off the holiday season

Kids and adults alike will be enchanted by Rudolph, Yukon Cornelius and Hermey, brought to life in the holiday favorite, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical.”

Family-friendly stage adaptation of CBS’ highest rated Christmas special of all time takes to the stage for two shows

Friday, Nov. 27 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. — RUTLAND — “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical” lands at Rutland’s Paramount Theatre on Friday, Nov. 27 for two exciting shows — 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical” practically transports audience members into the television special as songs drive the plot while familiar and nostalgic set design with projections, costumes and characters are brought to stage. The cast brings new energy to the classic songs and dialogue, while irresistible and loveable puppets help showcase the charming “roughness” from the television show’s stop-motion effects. “We address all of the familiar story elements from the television special with a talented cast and puppeteers who help recreate the magic on stage,” says Producing Partner Bob Penola.

The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of the appearance of his bright, shining nose, is ousted from the reindeer games in Christmas-town. He flees town, meets up with new friends Hermey and Yukon, and a series of funny and endearing adventures ensue including a visit to The Island of Misfit Toys. Rudolph journeys home, where a snowstorm of epic proportions is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph save his family and friends and help Santa save the holiday?

The production will expand on its campaign benefiting PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center that launched in conjunction with the tour last year.

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical” is produced by Iconic Entertainment Studios, Right Angle Entertainment and Wishing Star Productions.
