How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale as it comes to life on stage. Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming holiday classic.

Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos.

Hailed by The New York Times as “100 times better than any bedtime story,” Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical enchants adults and children alike!
