Kick off the holiday season with the Cincinnati premiere of the Broadway musical production, Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical, which will be at the Aronoff Center for the Arts from Wednesday, November 27 through Sunday, December 1. Tickets for the show start at $28 and individual show times vary, as listed below.

As part of the Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Cincinnati 2013/2014 Season, this whimsical, yet moving story has continued to capture the hearts of children and adults all over the world. On Broadway, during its holiday engagements in New York, The Grinch broke box office records for two consecutive years. Since that time, thousands of families across America have been delighted to have the production visit their city.

A few of the hit songs featured in the show include numbers from the original animated special, "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas” (written by Albert Hague and Dr. Seuss).

Throughout the musical, Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday loving Whos in Whoville. With striking sets and impressive costumes that were inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations, audiences will continue to be enamored by the timeless tale as they discover the true meaning of Christmas.

Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical will be at the Aronoff Center from November 27 – December 1. Performance times are Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., Friday at 1 p.m, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. and on Sunday at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
