Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will be showing at the Center for Puppetry Arts through December 29, 2019. There are discounts available.
This annual production of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is really cute. The puppets are based on the classic TV special and resemble them closely. It’s perfect for kids, with a running time of just an hour (no intermission).
As always, the show is followed by a “talk back,” in which the puppeteers turn on the lights and reveal some of the tricks of their craft — it is always fascinating and enlightening!
Every show also includes a FREE puppet-making workshop. This time round, you’ll be making Rudolph shadow puppet.
Holiday pricing is in effect — tickets are $25 on non-peak days and go up to $35 on weekends.
There’s also a special price of $29 on weekdays from Dec. 17th to 20th.
