A holiday family favorite movie, transformed for the stage.

Prancer follows the story of a little girl, Jessica. She has recently lost her mother and find the meaning of believing in Christmas magic through Prancer, one of Santa's reindeer. 

The Rose Theater had to go through about half a dozen film studios to bring the story to Omaha. 

It's getting rave reviews. 

But how do you make a play where an animal is it the main character come to life? 

Meet Prancer, and the puppeteers behind it. 

Three women work seamlessly, very close to each other, bringing the character alive.

From tail and hoof moments ear twitches.

It's something that is captivating children and adults making them all feel like little Jessica around Christmas. 

You can nab tickets to see Prancer through December 18th. Will this reindeer fly?  You just have to see that for yourself.
