Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will be showing at the Center for Puppetry Arts through January 2, 2022.
There are discounts available — see the details below.
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.
On most days, there are multiple shows. Weekday start times are 10am, noon, 2p.m. Sunday start times are 1pm and 3pm.
