This adaptation of the classic holiday children's tale by Dr. Seuss, tells the story of the reclusive green Grinch who decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. Joined by his dog, Max, the Grinch devises a plot to swipe everything holiday-related from the Whos.

This unique holiday production is excellent entertainment for the whole family and features a large ensemble cast of local children and adults.
