Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer JR
This holiday classic flies to stage in this 60-minute musical adaptation of the beloved television special. Filled with holiday hits like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "A Holly Jolly Christmas," it features all of your favorite characters including Santa and Mrs. Claus, Hermey the Elf, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius and, of course, Rudolph. It’s an adventure that teaches us that what makes you different can be what makes you special.

Participation Fee & Scholarships:
For students cast in our production, Young Footliters has an $95 participation fee. This fee helps to make our show possible and covers a portion of our production costs such as costumes, sets, props, painting, royalty rights, performance and rehearsal facilities.
We believe theatre participation should be possible for every student. Young Footliters is committed to providing scholarships to all students who require one, and we never turn away a student for inability to pay participation fees. Scholarships are available through the Revier Family Scholarship Fund for families with financial need. Please contact Elizabeth Tracey to receive a scholarship form.
