CONWAY — “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical” will appear at the University of Central Arkansas’s Reynolds Performance Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m.

In 1964, the beloved stop-motion animated television classic, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” made its network television debut, delighting audiences across the country. “The most famous reindeer of all” from the longest-running and highest-rated television special will return live on stage with “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical.”

“Multiple generations have grown up watching this television special,” said Reynolds Marketing and Finance Director Julia Dossett Morgan. “We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to present a story that appeals to all ages and will absolutely put our audience in the holiday spirit.”

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical” transports audience members into the television special as songs drive the plot while familiar and nostalgic set design with projections, costumes and characters are brought to stage.

“We address all of the familiar story elements from the television special with a talented cast and puppeteers who help recreate the magic on stage,” said Bob Penola, producing partner.

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical” is produced by Iconic Entertainment Studios, Right Angle Entertainment and Wishing Star Productions.
