Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer is a whimsical musical based very closely on the 1964 Claymation television special. Among the named roles to be cast are Sam the Snowman (Burl Ives in the TV special), Santa and Mrs. Claus, Clarice, Hermey, Mr. & Mrs. Donner, Bumble the Abominable Snowman and of course, Rudolph! A large ensemble will be cast as elves, reindeer, human-operated puppets to play the Misfit Toys, and more! All gender representations are welcome for these roles. The audition process involves singing, reading from the script, and dance/movement. Those with dance experience and puppetry skills are highly encouraged to audition. There are no perusal scripts available, but helpful sides (sample script & music segments) will be posted at https://mctinc.org/audition/

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer is under the direction of Abigail Gilbert, who most recently directed MCT’s Legally Blonde, Jr. Kelsey Seals (music director for Legally Blonde, Jr) will music direct and Megan HensleyShapiro, owner of Studio M, will provide the choreography. The performances run from November 30-December 17, 2023 at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are on sale now!
