Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical – a FLASH Giveaway!

Last year my littles and I went to the see the opening of the brand new musical Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

It was SO cute and SO much fun! My kids loved loved it and I thought it did the original TV show much justice. They didn’t try to change it, which I think was my biggest fear. That the producers would try to re- interpret the show. It’s stayed true to the much loved 50 year old classic TV Christmas special. The story, sets, characters, and songs were all familiar. Even the voices were spot on! The crowd of parents delighted when Rudolph squealed “I’m cuuuuuute!” and broke out in applause when the Prospector first bounded on stage! Because it was familiar. We were connecting to it on a memory level. And it ended with a bouncing snow flake sing a long!
I just quoted myself ;-)

It’s really the perfect starter show for kids. It’s not in any way pretentious and you’re out of there in an hour and a half. The performers keep them entertained the whole time!

Wanna go? Tomorrow night? I have a flash giveaway for a Family 4 Pack. Just leave me a comment below.

No widgets or hoops to jump through. Just comment on your memories of the show you watched every year as a kid, or tell me your secret holiday wish?

Winner will be announced at NOON tomorrow. So you gotta be ready to GO!
