Music At Asbury is delighted to present its first Family Program, Rudolph’s Tale: A 1964 Christmas, presented by the Gotham Radio Theatre group of New York. Audiences will use their imaginations as the actors of Gotham Radio Theatre take them back to 1964 to recreate the animated holiday classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, as a radio play, complete with songs, sound effects, and those one-of-a-kind characters – Hermie, Santa, Yukon Cornelius, Clarice, and, of course, Rudolph! The show is presented with a hint of parody and vintage era commercials, comprising humorous twists and fond memories that will keep you laughing. Classic TV commercial moments include Rice A Roni, Mr. Clean, the Jolly Green Giant and many more. It’s a program designed for the young AND young at heart. Show runs 60 minutes without intermission.
To add to the fun, join us after the show for seasonal treats, photos with Santa, and holiday shopping including live wreaths, kitchen items and holiday décor, one-of-a-kind greeting cards, and more!
Gotham Radio Theatre is inspired by the Lux Radio Theatre of the 1930’s and 40’s. Much like the radio hour serials of a bygone era, Gotham Radio performs classics from theatre, literature and the silver screen in little more than 60 minutes, with actors and sound artists performing live in vintage radio style. Gotham actors portray fictional 1940’s stars of stage, screen and radio who perform the Gotham radio play. These 40’s personalities are long- running characters and bring the audience an added entertaining dimension of a ‘show within a show.’ For the past several years, GRT has been in residence at the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
