Green, mean and likely loves Halloween…no we’re not talking about the Wicked Witch, the other “Mean One” is coming to town – Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical is coming for 7 performances only! Presented by Innovation Arts and Entertainment THE GRINCH comes to life from November 14 – 18, at The Centre in Vancouver.
Audiences, of all ages, will discover or re-discover the magic of the Dr. Seuss holiday classic as it comes to life live on stage, with all the meanness, greenness, heart and warmth one expects from the tale. 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,” THE GRINCH broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway during its holiday engagements at the St. James and Hilton theaters in New York. Since then, more than 2.5 million theatergoers across America have been delighted by this heart-warming holiday musical, which Gannett hailed as “A genius of a show! A total delight for both kids and adults.”
Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical features magnificent sets designed by John Lee Beatty and costumes designed by Robert Morgan, inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original book. Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason’s music and book breathe new life into this timeless story.
The 2023 production is directed by Matt August and choreographed by Bob Richard, based on the original choreography by John DeLuca and originally created by three-time Tony Award®-winning director, Jack O’Brien.
Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! runs November 14-18 at The Musical at The Centre in Vancouver, 777 Homer Street. For more details and tickets visit Ticketmaster.ca
