Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without that animated special about a certain red-nosed reindeer. This season, forget the TV set as Rudolph’s coming to life onstage for his 50th anniversary. Cozy on up on the Island of Misfit Toys as the beloved classic characters (Elves! Santa! Bumble, the Abominable Snow Monster!) come to life through puppetry and song. For an added holiday treat, snag a ticket for Lunch with Rudolph, a pre-show event that includes photo ops with the cast and North Pole delicacies such as turkey, gingerbread, and hot chocolate. $18.50-$44.50, 7pm Monday, 2pm and 7pm Tuesday, 2pm Wednesday, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 115 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org.
