Wednesday, October 19, 2016 — It wouldn’t be Christmas without a few reindeer games! If you recall, Rudolph is the most famous reindeer of all, and he’s ready to help audiences embrace their inner misfit at the Center for Puppetry Arts this holiday season. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™, playing in the Mainstage Theater from November 8 – December 31, was adapted by Jon Ludwig and is directed by Tim Sweeney. Based on the timeless 1964 stop-motion animated television special, this must-see family favorite is filled with holly jolly adventure and excitement bound to bring joy to all this holiday season!
Patrons will watch in wonder as the North Pole truly comes to life through the use of rod and body puppets meticulously designed by the Center’s Resident Puppet Builder Jason Hines and constructed by a team of puppet builders. Puppeteers Dolph Amick, Nikolas Carleo, Anna Caudle, Jake Krakovsky, Sarah Beth Moseley and Anna Claire Walker create the magic of the classic tale on stage. Sam the Snowman™ narrates the beloved tale of unlikely friendship formed among Rudolph™, Hermey the Elf™, Yukon Cornelius™ and all the magical misfit toys. While narrowly escaping the grips of the Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster™ and braving perilous blizzards, their journey is sure to warm hearts as the friends learn the importance of being true to one’s self and accepting others along the way. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ is recommended for ages 4 and up.
“Listening to this year's cast practicing the songs from Rudolph gets me in the mood for another holly jolly holiday season,” said artistic director, Jon Ludwig. “This cast is really skilled at singing, along with great manipulation and character voices. They are able to blend beautifully together. It makes me want to join in, and hopefully it will get families singing along with this annual classic.”
A celebration of individuality and acceptance, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ has become an Atlanta holiday tradition for all ages to enjoy!
During the first two weekends of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™, lucky patrons will have the special opportunity to have their picture taken with a puppet from the show at a post-show meet and great. Tickets to all shows also include entrance to the Create-A-Puppet Workshop™, where guests can make and decorate their own Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster™ Hand Puppet.
Audiences will also be in for a treat as the Center’s Worlds of Puppetry Museum will celebrate its first anniversary during the opening weekend of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™. Beginning Friday, November 11, patrons can view the Center’s newest acquisition, Topthorn from the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of War Horse. The weekend will include a viewing of the documentary Making War Horse with an introduction by Cheryl Henson, daughter of Jim Henson and Center for Puppetry Arts board member, as well as a discussion with performer, designer and puppet artist Tom Lee, who performed in War Horse at Lincoln Center. Lee will also present a master class in the Bunraku-inspired puppetry techniques used in that show. For more information, visit www.puppet.org.
I recently had the pleasure of enjoying a burger from The Counter! Seriously, this was the best burger I have ever had! You can tell when restaurants use fresh ingredients and that is exactly what you will find at The Counter.
When I arrived I was greeted by smiling staff and a clean, sleek atmosphere. When we were seated we were given a clipboard with a card to order from. This is where you build your burger. There are so many options! There is something for everyone whether you are gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian you will find something amazing to enjoy! I am a classic burger gal, so my burger was a bacon cheese burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and a Hawaiian sweet bun!
Lets talk milkshakes! Milkshakes and burgers are the perfect pair! Having a SPIKED (yes, you read that right, spiked) milkshake will put your experience at The Counter over the top! They have done these right from fat straws to real fruit in every bite!
