Max the Dog will narrate the show, which will feature the hit songs ‘You’re A Mean One Mr Grinch’ and ‘Welcome Christmas’, and tells the story of the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is ‘two sizes too small’.
He decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos, an endlessly joyful bunch bursting with holiday cheer. But eventually discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming and hilarious musical, based on Dr. Seuss’ hugely popular best-selling books made famous by the film adaptions.
Magnificent sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss will create the whimsical world of Whoville, will Griff Rhys Jones will bring the character of Old Max to life and Matt Terry will star as Young Max.
Karen Ascoe will play Grandma Who, David Bardsley will portray Grandpa Who, Alan Pearson will star as Papa Who and Holly Dale Spencer will play Mama Who.
The announcement of the tour comes as the new movie of The Grinch – starring the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch and Angela Lansbury – is wowing a new generation of fans.
