Recap: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer At The Tennessee Performing Arts Center

The musical is based on the TV special that has been telling the adored holiday story of Rudolph and his misfit friends for half a century. The beloved characters, Sam the Snowman, Hermey, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius, and, good ole Bumble, literally appear right before our wondering eyes.

The famous stop motion animated TV special originally aired on December 6, 1964, starring Burl Ives as Sam the Snowman, and Billie Mae Richards as Rudolph.  The timeless television special is celebrating its 50th birthday this holiday season as one of the most cherished Christmas classics of all time.

The musical does a wonderful job of capturing the lovely and minimal setting of the original.  The talented puppeteers gave life to giant bumbling bumble, the crooning woodland creatures, the changing scenes, and even baby Rudolph. 

A talented cast danced and sang their way through the North Pole to Christmas, with peppy, fun choreography, and those wonderfully infectious tunes we grew up singing.  The actors’ delivery of each character was well rehearsed, spot on, and impressive.  Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer will expand your holiday spirit and create new memories of a timeless classic.
