And you thought Rudolph felt a bit awkward about his, uh, nonconformity.

The story of Mooseltoe, which about a moose who wants to fly with Santa’s reindeer, is fast becoming the holiday performance of choice for families across the U.S.

And this Saturday the show visits The Gateway in Bellport, with three performances at noon, 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Click for tickets.

The show is narrated by TV’s Al Roker and several television and Broadway celebrities provide the voices for the characters that appear on stage.

Like so many holiday stories, the goal is saving Christmas.

And maybe learning a few life lessons along the way.
