Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer: Christmas has been cancelled! Or at least, it will be if Santa can't find a way to guide his sleigh through a fierce blizzard. Fortunately for him, there's Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Shunned by the other reindeer because of his glowing nose, Rudolph becomes a hero when he guides Santa through the storm and enables him to deliver Christmas presents to children all over the world. Engeman Theater, Saturday at 11 a.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
