How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical

Discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic story HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS as it comes to life on stage at a venue near you, for the first time in the UK. 

Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming and hilarious musical. 

Magnificent sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss’ create the whimsical world of Whoville, while Max the Dog narrates the story of the scheming Grinch whose heart is “two sizes too small,” as he decides to steal Christmas away from the Whos, an endlessly joyful bunch bursting with holiday cheer.

Join in the Christmas spirit with the show critics have called “A genius of a show! A total delight for both kids and adults”
