Overview / Synopsis: The holiday classic soars off the screen in this Broadway Junior, 60-minute musical adaptation of the beloved television special. Filled with holiday hits like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "A Holly Jolly Christmas," Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ JR. features all of your favorite characters including Santa and Mrs. Claus, Hermey the Elf, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius and, of course, Rudolph. It’s an adventure that teaches us that what makes you different can be what makes you special.


Because of his shiny nose, Rudolph doesn't feel like he belongs in Christmastown and sets off to find a place that accepts him. Along his journey, he encounters fellow misfits, only to realize that home is where he has belonged the whole time. When a storm threatens to keep Santa's sleigh from taking flight, it's up to Rudolph to save Christmas!


License this wonderful holiday musical that speaks to the misfit in all of us.





The iconic television special, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," has been shown on national television every year since it premiered in 1964. It is the highest-rated and most-watched Christmas special in history. According to a recent poll conducted by The Hollywood Reporter, over two-thirds of all Americans associate Rudolph with their annual holiday tradition.
