Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Lands at Center for Puppetry Arts This Winter!

Embrace your inner misfit and join the most famous reindeer of all in joyful merriment at Center for Puppetry Arts!

Lighting up Atlanta for its sixth consecutive year, Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerTM plays November 12-December 27.  Adapted by Jon Ludwig, directed by Tim Sweeney, and based on the timeless 1964 stop-motion animated television special, this can’t-miss family favorite is filled with holly-jolly adventure and excitement bound to brighten the Christmas season!

Audiences are invited to watch as Sam the Snowman narrates the beloved tale of unlikely friendship formed among Rudolph, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius, and all the magical misfit toys.  While narrowly escaping the grips of the Abominable Snow Monster of the North and braving perilous blizzards, their journey is sure to warm hearts as the friends learn the importance of being true to one’s self and accepting others along the way. 

“Every person, no matter the age, can relate to this story; its comforting and unchanging message celebrates the misfit in all of us,” said director Jon Ludwig.  “Since I was a young boy, I’ve always looked forward to watching the TV special each Christmas.  For me, and a lot of other people, the holiday season doesn’t feel complete without it; it’s one of the reasons we bring it back to the Center each year.”

A celebration of individuality and acceptance, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has become an Atlanta holiday tradition for all ages to enjoy!  Through the use of rod and body puppets meticulously created by the Center’s head puppet builder Jason Hines, puppeteers Dolph Amick, Nikolas Carleo, Luis R. Hernandez, Jake Krakovsky, Celia Quillian, and Amy Sweeney bring the North Pole to life!
