"But from the moment the curtain rose to the last note of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," the two youngsters I was sandwiched between sat up on the edge of their seats, their eyes only straying from the stage to look over at their parents and laugh."

- David Acosta, El Paso Times - 

“As audiences will see in the show, the movement is informed by the TV special, but also heightened and specified for the stage,” Christopher Deaton, Wishing Star vice president, said in an email. “While we are mindful of the needs of a contemporary theater audience, we feel embracing and paying homage to the TV special is integral to the success of the show.”

"The entire production is beautiful and charming... I recommend Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical become an annual family tradition."

- Lynn Beaver, Broadway World Austin - 

"The moments that we remember are feeling for Hermey, who wants to be something different than he’s being forced into being, or not being able to play with other [reindeer]... Finding those moments of truth are what really make the show successful.”

- Joe Stugeon, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical (2015) - 


“(Playing Hermey) is a dream... We’ve grown up loving these characters. To be a part of the joy that they bring for the holiday time is fantastic.  It’s a legendary show and very much a tradition.”

- Kyle Montgomery, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical (2015) -

"So, like its source material, this musical is intended to entertain the youngest of theater patrons. But it is an ideal show for grownups who want to get their children excited about the season and live theater with a single outing."

- Punch Shaw, Star-Telegram - 

“It is a dream,” Montgomery said. “I remember I called my mom right away when I got the part, and I couldn’t believe it was the movie I watched with my mom and dad and my brother.  So many people love this and know all the words to the songs, and I, like a lot of others, grew up with it.”

"It's happy, fun and playful, yet it carries an important message of acceptance and diversity -- a message that should be seen and heard by young and old alike."

- Danielle Georgiou, Dallas Observer -

"In the midst of a season where many mistake a happy holiday for one that fits into a preconceived uniform ideal, it’s vital to remember our differences should be treasured, too.  That’s the message that makes Rudolph endure."

- Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News -

"This is the perfect holiday show, and definitely not to be missed. The entire family will love the story of this plucky underdog and his unique friends. Thanks For Reading"

- Kris Noteboom, TheaterJones -

"No matter how a beloved holiday TV special is adapted for the stage, it probably won’t please everyone. Unless you’re talking about Wishing Star Productions’ staging of the 1964 stop-motion Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, which opened Friday night at Bass Hall."

- Mark Lowry, Fort Worth Star-Telegram -
