Embrace your inner misfit and join the most famous reindeer of all in joyful merriment at Center for Puppetry Arts.

Lighting up Atlanta for its sixth consecutive year, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” will run from Nov. 12 to Dec. 27 at 1404 Spring St. NW, Atlanta. Based on the timeless 1964 stop-motion animated television special, this can’t-miss family favorite is filled with holly-jolly adventure.

Audiences will watch as Sam the Snowman narrates the beloved tale of unlikely friendship formed among Rudolph, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and all the magical misfit toys. While narrowly escaping the grips of the Abominable Snow Monster of the North and braving perilous blizzards, the friends’ journey is sure to warm hearts as they learn the importance of being true to one’s self and accepting others along the way.

“Every person, no matter the age, can relate to this story; its comforting and unchanging message celebrates the misfit in all of us,” director Jon Ludwig said. “Since I was a young boy, I’ve always looked forward to watching the TV special each Christmas. For me, and a lot of other people, the holiday season doesn’t feel complete without it; it’s one of the reasons we bring it back to the Center each year.”

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” is recommended for ages 4 and older and will be performed in the Mainstage Theater. Discounted previews will be offered at 10 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. Nov. 10-11.
