Show Synopsis

The holiday classic soars off the screen in this Broadway Junior, 60-minute musical adaptation of the beloved television special. Filled with holiday hits like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “A Holly Jolly Christmas,” Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ JR. 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.

Because of his shiny nose, Rudolph doesn’t feel like he belongs in Christmastown and sets off to find a place that accepts him. 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!

Character Breakdown

Sam – The story’s narrator – and a snowman! Sam remembers the winter of “the big storm” – so well, in fact, that he decides to tell the whole story. Sam is a strong singer and actor. 
Santa ClausNeeds no introduction!
Mrs. ClausAnother classic Christmas character.  Kind but firm with her husband.
DonnerRudolph’s father and a proud member of the team who pulls Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve. Donner does not sing a solo but is a strong actor.
Mrs. DonnerRudolph’s mother. She loves her son and even sets off to find Rudolph after he runs away. 
Young RudolphThe hero of the story! This lovable misfit struggles to fit in due to his glowing, red nose. 
RudolphThe hero of the story! This lovable misfit struggles to fit in due to his glowing, red nose. 
BumbleThe Abominable Snow Monster.
HermeyA bit of an odd elf – he doesn’t want to make toys; he wants to be a dentist! Like Rudolph, Hermey is a misfit, and they become close friends over their shared outsider status. 
Boss ElfBoss Elf grumbles about Hermey’s interest in dentistry at first, but it’s only because he cares so much about making perfect toys for Santa – he doesn’t mean any harm. 
FireballOne of the yearlings. He is not particularly nice to Rudolph after his glowing nose is revealed. 
ClariceA doe who takes a liking to Rudolph in spite of his glowing, red nose. She is kind to him and even goes to look for him after he runs away.
ElvesThe Elves (including Elf 1, Elf 2, Elf 3, Elf4, and Aviator Elf) are Santa’s helpers and the choral backbone of the show.
Coach CometThe coach in charge of training the yearlings. He is good at his job, even if he is a little gruff, and doesn’t take kindly at all to Rudolph’s glowing red nose. 
Clarice’s Father – Drives home that Rudolph is an outcast in Christmastown.
Yukon CorneliusA prospector in the hunt for silver and gold, Yukon has a big personality and is not afraid of anything, including Bumble.

King MoonracerA great cameo role. This character does not sing a solo but should embody a regal, authoritative presence onstage. King Moonracer cares about the Misfit Toys on the island and wants to help them find real homes. Cast a good actor in this role who can command the stage.
Charlie-In-The-BoxThe sentry on the Island of Misfit Toys. Sad to be named Charlie instead of Jack.
DollyLives on the Island of Misfit Toys. 
CowboyOne of the Misfit Toys.
TrainOne of the Misfit Toys.
PlaneOne of the Misfit Toys.
Bird-FishOne of the Misfit Toys.
Spotted Elephant – Lives on the Island of Misfit Toys.
