(KEENE, NH) – Keene will be “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” when MoCo Arts’ Elementary School Musical Theatre presents their “Holly Jolly” production of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer JR. sponsored in part by Season Sponsor @310 Marlboro Street and Show Sponsor Joe Flood Insurance Brokerage, Inc.
MoCo students are putting on a heartfelt story with an important message about accepting and celebrating what is unique in ourselves and in our peers. Pull up an ice block and lend an ear to a timeless tale of holiday cheer with Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer JR. performed on Sunday, December 4 at 2 and 4:30 p.m. at MoCo Arts’ blackbox, The Founder’s Theatre. Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased by calling MoCo Arts at (603) 357-2100 or stopping by MoCo at 40 Roxbury Street, Keene, NH. 
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer JR. is based on the animated television special. The musical tells the story of Rudolph, a young reindeer born with a very shiny nose. Thinking only “normal” reindeer have a chance to make the team pulling Santa’s sleigh, Rudolph’s parents encourage their son to hide his blinking nose. When the other reindeer discover his secret, Rudolph is hurt by his community and excluded from participating in the very reindeer games that train Santa’s sled team. Disheartened, Rudolph meets a young Elf named Hermey who doesn’t fit in either. Hermey dreams of someday becoming a dentist instead of working in Santa’s toyshop, which is what everyone expects of him. The two misfits set out on an adventure, find fellowship with other outcasts, and return home to the North Pole just as foul weather threatens to cancel Christmas. Everyone must work together to save Christmas, and they learn than their differences make them special and save Christmas after all.
