The story is based on the famous song by the same name, and includes favorite characters like Rudolph, Santa and Mrs. Claus, reindeer and elves, plus some new characters. The story highlights the growing years of Rudolph, the reindeer that was born with a shiny nose and later goes on to lead Santa’s sleigh. It is a family event filled with humor, a lovely message about celebrating our differences, and familiar music including Let it Snow, We are Santa’s Elves, I’m Getting’ Nuttin’ for Christmas, Baby It’s Cold Outside, and of course, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Be prepared for some fun audience interaction. In addition, SAP will be supporting Toys for Tots by having a collection box at the play for those who want to donate new toys for kids.
