Last seen when she was "no more than two", Cindy Lou Who is all grown up now, and living in a trailer on the side of Mount Crumpit. WHO'S HOLIDAY! Is a wildly funny and heartfelt adults-only comedy that tells the story of Cindy Lou as she recalls that Christmas Eve she first met the Grinch and the twisted turn of events her life has now taken. This hysterical parody is a must-see for any grown-ups (leave the tots at home!) who are feeling a little naughty this holiday season.
WHO'S HOLIDAY! stars Good Theater favorite Grace Bauer, who has delighted audiences with her hilarious, winning performances as Maria in A COMEDY OF TENORS and Mary in HOMER BOUND. Good Theater veteran Sally Wood directs, and Michael Lynch stage manages. WHO'S HOLIDAY! will feature costume design by Justin Cote, lighting design by Iain Odlin, scenic and sound design by Stephen Underwood, and props by Jared Mongeau.
WHO'S HOLIDAY! plays Saturdays at 12:30, Sundays at 5:00, and Tuesdays at 7:00 (all tickets $25). Tickets may be purchased online by visiting the company's website www.goodtheater.com or calling the box office at (207) 835-0895.
