November 28 - December 31

at the Todd Wehr Theater Directions

And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows!  Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the beloved stop-motion classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer® and his friends soar off the screen and return to our stage this holiday season.  From fleeing the Abominable Snow Monster to saving Christmas, join Rudolph and his friends, Hermey and Yukon Cornelius as their adventures teach us that what makes you different can be what makes you special.  Don’t miss this wonderful holiday tradition that speaks to the little misfit in all of us.
