A Children’s Theatre Company Original Production
A miserly and miserable, ever-so-cantankerous Grinch has observed the despicable Christmas joy of the Whos with disdain, from a distance, for decades. Enough! In this favorite holiday story, filled with music and Seussian rhymes, he conceives a dastardly plot to destroy the holiday they love. It’s the smallest of the Whos, tiny Cindy Lou, who extends a hand. Through the combination of kindness and community, we witness not only a change in the course of Who-History, but the size and capacity of the cantankerous Grinch’s heart.
Based on the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
Book and lyrics by Timothy Mason
Music by Mel Marvin
Music Direction by Denise Prosek and Victor Zupanc
Choreography by Linda Talcott Lee

“Since the moment I applied that first dab of green makeup, ten years ago, The Grinch has been my absolute favorite role to portray. It’s a character that’s endlessly rich with opportunities to dynamically explore the full spectrum of human emotions. And I love stories of transformation. This story reminds us that fear and hate are easy, but difficult growth and change are more rewarding for ourselves and our communities. Plus, it comes at a time of year when I get to pound gallons of Christmas cookies. This is a show I can’t wait to celebrate once more!”
– Reed Sigmund | Actor, The Grinch
