How the Grinch Stole Christmas


December 21 - 31

GrinchA musical for the youngest set, based on the beloved story by Dr. Seuss and set to the music of Mel Marvin and Albert Hague. The characters look like they could live in your toy box. Add whimsical staging and sets, and it’s really a great opportunity to introduce the kids to live Broadway entertainment. Most know the story from the book or the cartoon, and live singing and dancing create that “Wow” factor. Hague was the original composer of a few of the favorites, like “You’re a Mean one, Mr. Grinch,” while Marvin has an impressive track record of writing musicals for young audiences, such as Little Miss Hollywood and Mr. Popper’s Penguins, in addition to his grown-up shows like Yentl. One hour 20 minutes, no intermission.
