The LifeScape Center for the Arts, in conjunction with the Augustana University Theatre Department and Black Hills Playhouse, is thrilled to kick off your holiday season with the all-abilities theatre production, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!
Rudolph saves Christmas and goes down in history in this family classic that is sure to bring joy and nostalgia! Come revisit the adventures of Rudolph, Hermey, Cornelius, and of course, Santa. We will travel to Christmastown, The Island of Misfit Toys, and may even run into an abominable snow monster along the way, but fear not, Rudolph’s nose WILL save the day!
The Augustana Theatre Department is excited to partner with the LifeScape Center for the Arts and Black Hills Playhouse in their theatre students’ first experience with an all-abilities production.
We are also proud to share that the Sunday afternoon matinee with be made even more accessible to our guests with our special autism and sensory-friendly performance.

Sunday, November 19, 2:30-4:30 p.m. – Autism & Sensory-Friendly Performance
-Our autism and sensory-friendly production is designed to welcome an inclusive audience that is accessible to everyone, including first-time theatregoers and young children. The performance is modified to allow for different sensitivities to lights and sounds. Understanding that sitting quietly through an entire show can be difficult for some, this performance will allow for audience movement and interaction. We strive to provide a welcoming experience to theatre by creating a safe and non-judgmental environment where movement and vocal reactions are anticipated.
