A new national tour of the Dr. Seuss classic opens in Wimbledon on Friday 1st November
Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical – the record-setting New York Christmas sensation – is to play a UK Tour this year, ahead of a Christmas season at The Lowry.
The productions will make its UK premiere at New Wimbledon Theatre on Friday 1 November 2019 and then go on to play Glasgow, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Birmingham, before starting a 4-week Christmas season at The Lowry in Salford on Tuesday 10 December 2019.
Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason’s music and book breathe new life into this timeless story. Magnificent sets designed by John Lee Beatty and costumes designed by Robert Morgan are inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations and help to transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville, and to conjure the true meaning of Christmas.
Simon Friend, producer of the UK production told Encore Radio:
“I am so thrilled that The Grinch will be travelling the UK next year, stealing Christmas all around the country! The musical has been enchanting audiences across the US for over a decade, and we have been lucky enough to secure some of the best theatres in the country for its UK premiere. We can’t wait to see the UK going green over the coming year!”
About the Show:
Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas”, Max the Dog narrates the show, as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is ‘two sizes too small’, decides to steal Christmas away from the Holiday loving Whos.
