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 CTC holiday favorite, filled with music and Seussian rhymes, he plots the greatest heist imaginable—stealing the very thing they love the most! Until, that is, the smallest of the Whos, tiny Cindy Lou, 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 old green guy’s heart.  

Based on the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss 
Book and Lyrics by Timothy Mason 
Music by Mel Marvin
Choreography by Kelli Foster Warder
Directed by Dean Holt

“I am absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to direct and perform in CTC’s holiday favorite, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! I was in the cast of the inaugural production 30 years ago as we took our first steps into Whoville, and I carry with me that initial sense of wonder every time I return. This show holds so many wonderful memories, and I can’t wait to collaborate and create with friends, both old and new, as we build on those memories and share the joy, heart, and laughter of this story.” 

-Dean Holt, The Grinch Director
