How the Grinch Stole Christmas 2022 Performance Schedule
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is coming to a stage near you! The timeless holiday tale has been told through every entertainment medium, from film and television to the 1957 book by Dr. Seuss that we all grew up on. But it’s only a certain time of year that it’s performed in front of a live audience, and you simply need to experience this beloved holiday classic from your theater seat.
The 2000 film with Jim Carrey as the Grinch was great and all, but the stage adaptation gives you just as much (if not more) holiday spirit! It’s ironic, isn’t it…that’s exactly what the Grinch has to learn throughout the show! He may be a “mean one,” as the song says, but he’s mostly just misunderstood. He hates Christmas due to his troubled past and close-minded mantras, but that changes as he discovers the power of friendship, love, and seasonal spirit. Are you ready to How the Grinch Stole Christmas live from the stage, narrated by the Grinch’s dog, Max? It’s playing in cities like Midland, MI; Memphis, TN; San Diego, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Austin, TX; and more through the rest of 2022!
The Grinch’s origins are made clear at the beginning of the musical. He lives alone up in the mountains while the town of Whoville sits just below him, with the Who’s soaking up the joys of Christmas as he publicly and repeatedly states his hate for the holiday. The townspeople believe that the Grinch is a monster with a heart that’s “two sizes too small,” and you may not disagree as he sings numbers like “I Hate Christmas Eve.” Come on, who besides the Grinch could hate such a joyous occasion?
However, it’s not quite how it appears at first. The Grinch has been singled out by the Who’s for his entire life, purely for being different. It’s not until a sweet little girl named Cindy Lou Who decides to give him a chance that he reevaluates his feelings about Christmas, and let’s just say that it gets worse, then better before the Grinch finally gets his happy ending. Without any spoilers, seasonal numbers like “Welcome, Christmas,” “Down the Mountain,” and “Stealing Christmas” tells the tale of how he rages on before redeeming himself to the town of Whoville.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is the perfect seasonal event for the entire family, as it’s a half-century-old story that kids, parents, and even grandparents will be familiar with! Now you can associate a few catchy songs with the story you know and love, making the show a must-see for fall and winter 2022. Get your tickets to How the Grinch Stole Christmas today!
