Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a wonderful, whimsical musical based upon the classic Dr. Seuss book. Max the dog narrates, as the mean and scheming Grinch decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos, leading The Grinch to discover there is more to Christmas than he bargained for. San Diego audiences will experience the magic of this annual theatrical event as the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center, will once again transform into the snow-covered Whoville, right down to the last can of Who-hash. Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! features the classic holiday songs “Santa for a Day,” “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” and “Welcome, Christmas (Fah Who Doraze).”
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.
Tickets for Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! will go on sale at a later date to be announced.
Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is supported in part by production sponsors Elaine and Dave Darwin and Qualcomm.
