Young Jessica Riggs’ family has fallen on hard times. Still, she keeps her belief in Santa Claus and the idea that there are miracles in the world. When an injured reindeer appears in Jessica’s backyard, she believes it is Prancer. While she is nursing the creature back to health, the whole community of Three Oaks eventually learns about Prancer, causing big problems for Jessica as she tries to return the reindeer home. Based on the cherished film, Prancer, this piece uses a heartwarming story and breathtaking puppetry to bring light into your holiday season.
“Prancer, the quiet, poignant and beautifully produced new play at the Rose, will sneak up on you…. As it plays out, you don’t realize that Prancer is lodging itself in your heart. I was surprised at the lump in my throat (and my soggy eyes) at the end. Expect this show to stay with you for the rest of the holiday season.” – Omaha World Herald
“Seeing Prancer truly is an entire theater going experience – one that we would highly recommend to families this holiday season.” –Daily Nonpareil
