Cardboard Playhouse presents Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ JR. The holiday classic soars off the screen in this Broadway Junior musical adaptation of the beloved television special.

Along his journey, he encounters fellow misfits, only to realize that home is where he has belonged the whole time. When a storm threatens to keep Santa’s sleigh from taking flight, it’s up to Rudolph to save Christmas!
