I was lucky enough to be a part of the media weekend at The Center For Puppetry Arts in Atlanta as they showcased their newest performance, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Everything about the show was amazing. As a mom, I was worried about the theatre being kid friendly. To my great pleasure, they were ready for kids and able to accommodate families, schools and more. There was someone to help guide you through the museum, up the stairs and into the theater itself. They are used to children and have everything clearly marked and easy to find.
Before the show began, two of the puppeteers came out and introduced themselves. They wanted all the kids in the audience to know that it was okay to clap, cheer and laugh.
The show opens just as the movie does. The scenes with the newspaper headings are projected onto a large nearly see through screen. The whole performance in so true to the movie and the puppets look identical to the ones in the movie! The actors and puppeteers definitely deserved a standing ovation!
What we also found fun, was walking through the museum to see all Jim Henson’s collection of puppets and stories behind the legend himself.
At the end of our trip, we all got to take a Rudolph puppet to take home and make!
This is a highly recommended show for family fun in Atlanta!!
Make sure to get your tickets in advance as the shows do sell out!
