Kicking off the holiday season and back by popular demand, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is brought to life at the Center for Puppetry Arts.

For fans of the beloved 1964 stop-motion animated television special, this adaptation is a nostalgic look back for kids of all ages.

Poor Rudolph, with his shiny nose, simply can’t fit it.  He even tries to live in the Island of Misfit Toys, but finds himself an outsider there as well.  Fortunately, he meets fellow outcast Hermey the Elf, who wants to be a dentist, and Yukon Cornelius, a prospector who is on a quest for riches.

The multimedia presentation features a variety of of puppets, live singing puppeteers, and a bigger than life stage. This classic tale instills an inspiring message of courage and acceptance to those who feel different.

So join Santa and the merry folks in the North Pole and cheer on Rudolph and his big shiny nose at the Center for Puppetry Arts, running through January 6, 2013.
