Adapted and directed by Jon Ludwig—the Center for Puppetry Arts’ artistic director—"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" mirrors the storyline and aesthetic of the 1964 stop-motion TV classic. Using rod, body, and animation puppets, world-class puppeteers chronicle Rudolph's exclusion from the Reindeer Games, as well as his decision to run away from home. Wandering through the snow-covered North Pole, he eventually runs into Hermey the elf, an aspiring dentist, who has also run away from ridicule. Together these two stumble on Yukon Cornelius, the Abominable Snow Monster, and the Island of Misfit Toys, weaving a tale of adventure and humor for audiences of all ages. Through trial and tribulation, the characters learn to embrace their strengths, accept their differences, and appreciate their friendship. Tickets include admission to the Create-A-Puppet workshop or to-go puppet kit and museum exhibits, which feature famous Jim Henson puppets such as Cookie Monster, Kermit the Frog, and others. The museum is open to guests before and after showtime.
