The beloved TV classic soars off the screen and onto the stage this holiday season. Come see all of your favorite characters from the special including Santa and Mrs. Claus, Hermey the Elf, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius and, of course, Rudolph, as they come to life in It’s an adventure that teaches us that what makes you different can be what makes you special. Don’t miss this wonderful holiday tradition that speaks to the misfit in all of us. Based on the animated television special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and the stage production directed and conceived by Jeff Frank and First Stage. Script adaptation by Robert Penola. Arrangements and orchestrations by Timothy Splain.

As you can see my youngest brought her talking stuffed Rudolph along. She was curious to see if he said all the same lines in the musical. It did not disappoint. Not only did they say all the classic lines, but there were also additional songs and dances. One of my favorite parts was when the elves were singing and dancing for Santa to the song "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree".
There are digital screens surrounding the stage to go along with the action and songs. I'm always impressed with the puppeteers, props, set changes, and actors flying around on harnesses. I was amazed by the vocals from the girl that played Clarice. I would recommend going to see this musical performance when it comes to a city near you or if you live near Detroit go see a Fox Theatre holiday show this December.
