Mooseltoe Brings a Light-Hearted Message of Hope and Cheer to Rahway’s UCPAC


Rahway, NJ- ­The whimsical costumed characters of Mooseltoe will take the Mainstage at the Union County Performing Arts Center for a night of holiday fun on Thursday, December 1 at 7 PM.

Based on the book Mooseltoe: A Moose and a Dream, written by Jim Semmelman, children and adults alike will delight in this tale about something we’ve all experienced: the struggle to go against expectations and dream big. Not content with life as an ordinary moose, Mooseltoe strives to be more. And what could be more noble than pulling Santa’s sleigh alongside his famous reindeer?

While Mooseltoe’s father is against the idea, his mother encourages him to ask the Moose King how to make his dream a reality. This is where Mooseltoe’s fantastic journey begins, and it isn’t always easy. Along the way, he meets a series of winter-themed characters that simultaneously teach Mooseltoe and the audience lessons that last a lifetime. When one of Santa’s reindeer can’t go on, will Mooseltoe finally get the chance he’s been waiting for?
