Fabulous Fox Theatre is bringing the magic of a cherished animated television classic to the stage this holiday season. "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical" will come to St. Louis for three shows Nov. 21-22.
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical" recreates the story of the 1964 stop-motion animated television show with nostalgic set designs, classic songs like "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," puppetry and an Abominable Snow Monster that tops out at more than 12 feet tall. The live stage show captures the charm, magic and roughness of the original stop-motion television special.
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" follows the journey of Rudolph, a reindeer who doesn’t quite fit in, and his friends Hermey the Elf and Yukon Cornelius as they travel to The Island of Misfit Toys and brave a snowstorm to help Santa save Christmas. Like the original television show, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical" reminds audiences that it is important to celebrate our differences. The stage show has partnered with PACER’S National Bullying Prevention Center to provide character resources for educators related to the show's theme.
Performances will be Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 22 at 1 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $23.30 and may be purchased beginning at 10 a.m. Sept. 5 at metrotix.com, by calling 314-534-1111, or in person at the Fabulous Fox Box Office.
