ATLANTA -- The Center for Puppetry Arts’ beloved holiday adaptation of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ is soaring back into town to once again charm Atlanta audiences this holiday season. Adapted and directed by the Center’s Artistic Director, Jon Ludwig, the production is based on the classic 1964 stop-motion animated special and provides the audience with the opportunity to experience the timeless tale of Rudolph and his misfit friends live on stage.

“The third time is a charm,” remarked Ludwig on the return of the holiday classic. “Shine up your jingle bells and get ready to sing along to your favorite holiday hits! It’s Holly Jolly Time!”

Opening on November 8, Ludwig’s adaptation for the puppet stage faithfully embraces the original and includes all of the timeless characters such as the aspiring dentist, Hermey the elf, Yukon Cornelius, and the Abominable Snow Monster. The Center is honored to work again with Character Arts LLC to bring back the licensed puppet stage production of this yuletide classic.

This holiday season, families are in for a special new treat. After select performances, a rare, live-camera, behind-the-scenes demonstration will be included. The Rudolph Unwrapped demonstration showcases how the puppeteers magically perform the story of Rudolph and all his misfit friends. Patrons will receive an exclusive peek into a world rarely seen. Traditionally, puppeteers perform hidden; while watching Rudolph Unwrapped, audiences will view the intricate backstage ballet of the puppets, props, scenery, and puppeteers. This “behind-the-playboard” exploration is a unique way for audiences to fully enjoy the “other side of the curtain.”
