Join us on a holiday adventure to the North Pole! In this musical adaptation of the beloved television special, Rudolph doesn’t feel like he fits in at Santa’s workshop, so he sets off through the wintry woods to try and find where he belongs. Along the way, he meets many other “misfits” including Hermey the Elf, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius, and of course, the Island of Misfit Toys. Together with his new friends, Rudolph discovers that our differences can be our greatest strengths – and good things come when we lend a helping hand (or hoof!) to those around us.
