[exp] [/exp]Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will be at the Center for Puppetry Arts through December 31, 2017.
I’ve seen Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer twice, and it’s a cute production. The puppets are based on the classic TV special, and the Center for Puppetry Arts did an excellent job of making Rudolph & the rest of the misfit crew look just like the screen version. In the past, my girls have put together Rudolph & Hermey shadow puppets during the Create-A-Puppet workshop (included with show admission), and they’re always an instant hit in our home. This year, you’ll be making a King Moonracer rod puppet.
While you’re at the Center for Puppetry Arts, you can check out the World of Puppetry Museum, which features the Jim Henson Collection as well as The Global Collection, showcasing puppets from around the world. Not only will you see awesome puppets (they have Fraggle Rock, Muppets, Sesame Street, Dark Crystal, & Labyrinth characters, to name a few, all of which makes me happy!), but the new museum includes interactive spaces where you can try your hand at puppetry.
