“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose, and if you ever saw it you would even say it glows.” – Jonny Marks


December 2nd, at exactly 1:00 pm, I, Livier Arellano, had the honor to watch a spectacular performance. In the Walton Art Centers theater, they were performing the film version of Rudolph. That day I was second in line. To show my spirit, I wore a light up sweater of Rudolph. Now I’m not saying you have to wear something to show some sort of spirit for whatever musical or play they’re performing but just know I did.


My favorite part of the musical is when Rudolph and Hermey sang together about being mistfists. This part of the musical teaches the audience that it’s alright to be different and independent. There was this certain connection with the actors and the audience. Especially when towards the end of the musical they sang Rudolph’s song and both the actors and audience sang together. It was a beautiful moment and an awe so experience.    


My rating for the musical will have to be a eight out of ten. When moving the Snow Monster, you could see the people moving it around… it took the real experience away. Although I admire the attempt of not showing themselves by camouflaging they’re suits white to blend in with the Snow Monster. They could have also tried improving the scene where they’re on the iceberg, sailing to the land of misfit toys.


The people acting in the musical weren’t the only thing that amazed me. I had the cool opportunity to have someone in the Walton Art Center talk about the “behind the scenes” with me and some other peers. Which I’d like to share a bit with all of you today.  


The type of play and musical they perform are from actors who travel around the world to show off their amazing talent.So the actors that you see on stage aren’t always the same actors. What I mean by that is that each different play or musical you see are from different “gigs”. Each gig is able to perform at least eight times on the same stage. The Walton Art Center pays the gigs to perform their play/musical. The art center receives they’re money from the Walmart AMP, and some donations from the people. Knowing a bit more about how the musical was set up, sort of intrigued me more while watching.


The Walton Art Center not only performs plays and musicals, but also concerts . The 10×10 theater holds lots of entertaining broadway shows and jazzical music, to which I encourage you to visit sometime.
