This Christmas meet Rudy, a young reindeer who instead of having a red nose, stands out from the crowd because of his love of music.
THE BALLAD OF RUDY is an original children’s show which opens in The Studio from 12 December – 3 January 2016 and is created by acclaimed children’s theatre company Goblin Theatre. Funny, warm and with a massive heart, this show features live music, original songs and tonnes of Christmas cheer. THE BALLAD OF RUDY is full to the brim with magical music and will have children aged 3 + dancing in the aisles.
Sing the blues with a Polar Bear, jam with the Puffins and beat-box with an Arctic Fox. It all happens at the North Pole Jazz Lounge; the coolest place on earth. Together with a magical Jazz Penguin, Rudy embarks on an adventure teaching him that life isn’t necessarily about following the herd….
Composed by members of the acclaimed Gypsy Funk Jazz Band Los Pelos Rizos, live musicians perform a funky jazz score introducing young audiences to the idea that being creative and different is something to celebrate.
