Rudolph, Santa Claus and company are coming to the Warehouse Living Arts Center. “Rudolph: The Red-Nosed Reindeer” will be presented by the Warehouse Theatre’s Corsicana Children’s Company Dec. 1 through Dec. 4.

Originally produced at Casa Manana Playhouse, the script was written by Margo Brandt with music by John Hanby.

Do you recall the most famous reindeer of all? When the other reindeer won’t let Rudolph play in all the reindeer games and Master Reindeer (played by Michael Wisdom) expels him from Flying School, a rejected, red-nosed Rudolph (played by Mikayla Hodge) runs away to find a place to hide.

Instead, Rudolph discovers the secret of Santa’s toy shop. But outside, a thick fog is covering up the North Pole and a frantic Santa (played by Ron Motley) has lost his list and is ready to cancel Christmas!

Director Frances Seidensticker Dodds says, “Will Rudolph’s ‘shiny nose, so bright’ help Santa guide his sleigh through the fog? Join us at the Warehouse Theatre and find out how Rudolph goes ‘down in his-tor-y.’”

Joining Hodge, Motley and Wisdom in the large cast are a combination of adults, teens and children ages 8 and up.

The family is played by Nate Woodall, Amanda Calloway, Brett Doring and Emily Stovall with Aimee Kasprzyk appearing as Mrs. Claus.

Jack Rabbit and Bunny Rabbit will be played by Brett Doring and Kaitlin Griffin.

The Reindeer are Betsy Woodall, Laura Star, Christiana Kenney, Kelsie Cook, Carly Haynie, Sarah Kasprzyk, Jalani Tieuel, Alexa Anderson and Savanna Bearden.

The Elves are Klinton Wright, Tori Williams, Garrett Hudson, Kati Alexander, Aaron-Michael Rines and Brianna Fowler.

The Toys will be played by Toby Burch, Tanner Burch, Brett Doring, Emily Beauchamp, Darryl White Jr., Brenna Hudson, Leah Butler, Jacob Sweeney, Emily Stovall and Victoria Worsham.

A large production like “Rudolph” requires a lot of work and preparation.

In addition to Director Dodds the production staff and crew includes Marsha Douglass, choreographer; Lora Duncan, vocal coach; R. M. (Son) Bowden, Jr. and Mark Bedgood, set painting and construction; Gerald Clore, lighting design. Back stage and tech crews include Cindy Fowler, Betsy Woodall, Laura Star, Michelle Pennington, Cheyenne Fitzgerald and Dakota Fitzgerald.
