The Way Off Broadway Dinner Theatre Presents Stage Adaptation of RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER

The Way Off Broadway Dinner Theatre, once again, has a full line-up of entertainment for the holiday season. Along with its Mainstage production of A Christmas Special Christmas Show, Way Off Broadway's Family Theatre will be presenting the stage adaptation of the classic Christmas television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Rudolph and all of his friends from the popular holiday special will come to life on the Frederick stage beginning November 28th.

Filled with holiday hits like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Holly Jolly Christmas," Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer features all of your favorite characters including Santa and Mrs. Claus, Hermey the Elf, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius, and, of course, Rudolph. It's an adventure that teaches us that what makes you different can be what makes you special.

Because of his shiny nose, Rudolph doesn't feel like he belongs in Christmastown and sets off to find a place that accepts him. Along his journey, he encounters fellow misfits, only to realize that home is where he has belonged the whole time. When a storm threatens to keep Santa's sleigh from taking flight, what makes Rudolph different turns out to be what helps him save Christmas.
