Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a wonderful, whimsical musical based upon the classic Dr. Seuss book. Back for another incredible year, the family favorite features the songs “Santa for a Day,” “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” and “Welcome, Christmas (Fah Who Doraze),” the delightful carol from the popular animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Celebrate the holidays as the Old Globe Theatre is once again transformed into the snow-covered Who-ville, right down to the last can of Who-hash.

Last year, due to the pandemic, the Globe’s 23rd annual production of the Grinch was presented by KPBS Radio in San Diego as a free audio-only production.

We regret that, in the interest of safety, we are unable to offer all-ages performances for this year’s production of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! For 2021, all performances welcome children ages three and up. Children under the age of three (including babes in arms) will not be admitted into the theatre. Regardless of age, each audience member must wear a mask. For more information on our COVID-19 policy, click here. We look forward to resuming our all-ages performances in the future.

Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is supported in part by production sponsors Elaine and Dave Darwin and Qualcomm.
