Y’all know a show can’t come to Shea’s Buffalo without me hitting it up! It’s been awhile however since a Broadway show came to these parts that I haven’t already seen.
I was very fortunate to attend a high school with a killer music department, so all the classics? I had the chance to attend years ago! Then any traveling broadway show since? Your girl was definitely in attendance. Some people splurge on Jordan’s and Gucci hoodies, I splurge on handbags, Bath & Body Works and experiences.
So when I heard the broadway hit, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer The Musical was coming to Buffalo, I definitely purchased tickets for my daughter and I to attend!
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer The Musical
The beloved TV classic RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER soars off the screen and onto the stage this holiday season. Come see all of your favorite characters from the special including Santa and Mrs. Claus, Hermey the Elf, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius and, of course, Rudolph, as they come to life in RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER: THE MUSICAL. It’s an adventure that teaches us that what makes you different can be what makes you special. Don’t miss this wonderful holiday tradition that speaks to the misfit in all of us. Based on the animated television special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and the stage production directed and conceived by Jeff Frank and First Stage. Script adaptation by Robert Penola. Arrangements by Timothy Splain. Orchestrations by William C. White. The performance of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is 90 minutes including 20 minute intermission.
If we are being completely honest, I went to this show with low expectations! I knew the show was aimed for a very young audience, so I wasn’t expecting much! Most kiddie shows have a tendency to be mediocre. So I’m shocked that I have nothing but positive things to say about this production! From the very first scene I was totally entertained! Every kid in the audience was also glued to the stage!!! So happy producers had both parents AND kids in mind when writing out the revamped script!
Rudolph the Musical claims to be a recreation of our childhood favorite holiday TV show so producers claim they were trying to stick as closely as possible to the TV version! I was actually super impressed at how faithful a rendition it was. Even musicals like Aladdin have added scenes and characters! Rudolph is a real deal recreation. All the details were spot on, down to the pink spotted elephant and the train with square wheels. The recreations were amazing!
I should also add that all of the non-human/elf/reindeer characters are played by puppets so it’s pretty entertaining to watch the puppeteers in their white costumes work their Rudolph magic!
If your kiddos are new to the theater life, I would recommend this show as a trial show! At just an hour and a half, including a 15 minute intermission, it’s shorter than a movie. The audience was also primarily families with kiddos of their own, so the crowd is more forgiving when your child’s stage whisper can be heard
throughout the theater.
you can also prep your kiddos ahead of time by watching the TV special first! They might have an easier time following the story, and knowing the characters when they hit the stage!
I would definitely recommend buying those tickets if Rudolph comes to town! Perfect family show! This would also make for a fun date night if theater is your thing! We purchased balcony tickets for a little under $30 a ticket and I would totally do it again! Definitely an awesome show if you can find a killer deal on seats! Worth every penny!
