She said I'm cuuuuuute!


These are our sentiments exactly about Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical which glides into Fair Park for a brief stop this weekend only. The nostalgic television classic now comes to life on stage with a meticulous recreation of the beloved characters (and more specifically, their traditionally-familiar mannerisms and voice inflections) who make their way across treacherously-frosty terrain on an epic holiday adventure that ultimately leads them right back to the warm comfort of home just in time to save Christmas.


Sarah Errington is absolutely precious as sweet-yet-scorned young Rudolph, and Wesley Edwards is pure 'elfin magic' as Hermey the elf 'slash' aspiring dentist. The two are surrounded by a cast of whimsical Christmastown inhabitants including Donner, Coach Comet, Mrs. Claus, Santa the too-skinny-but-increasingly-jolly king of jing-a-ling, and Yukon Cornelius whose humorous gold-digging strategies repeatedly sent pint-sized audience members into yet another round of the giggles. Stage hands donned in snowy-white outfits attempt to blend in with the background as they adjust props and act as puppeteers for furry and feathery friends like adorable rabbits, birds, and raccoons as well as the winged lion King Moonracer, the huge Abominable Snow Monster, and the fantastically-accurate Charlie-In-the-Box who stands as the official sentry on the Island of Misfit Toys.



Although a brief sing-a-long is reserved for the end, this show features well-known songs like Silver and Gold, We Are Santa's Elves, Jingle, Jingle, Jingle, and We're a Couple of Misfits. Especially notable vocal performances include Steve Watkins as Sam the Snowman singing A Holly Jolly Christmas and Becca Andrews' beautiful rendition of There's Always Tomorrow as the doe-eyed love interest Clarice.


A wintry wonderland of set design and video projections along with festive costumes and the use of 'flying' aerial sequences make Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical everything we hoped it would be and even more. So make your way over to the Music Hall quickly ... before the show blows away like a snowflake flurry.


Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical runs at Dallas Summer Musicals through Sunday, November 27, 2016, with tickets starting at just $20. The show is 75 minutes with intermission, and booster seat cushions are available for children. Additional upcoming shows also include Broadway Christmas Wonderland, An American in Paris, Stomp, The Illusionists, Let It Be, Kinky Boots, Circus 1903, and The Bodyguard.
