VIDEO: HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS at The Old Globe - How the Grinch Does His Makeup

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS runs at the Old Globe Theatre through December 24. It has a book and lyrics by Timothy Mason, and music by Mel Marvin.

THE GRINCH is a wonderful, whimsical musical based upon the classic Dr. Seuss book. Back for its 20th incredible year, the family favorite features the songs "This Time of Year," "Santa for a Day," and "Fah Who Doraze," the delightful carol from the popular animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Celebrate the holidays as the Old Globe Theatre is once again transformed into the snow-covered Whoville, right down to the last can of Who-hash.

The cast stars Edward Watts as The Grinch, Reese McCulloch and Abigail Estrella as Cindy-Lou Who, Dan DeLuca as Young Max, Robert J. Townsend as Papa Who, Larry Raben as Grandpa Who, Bets Malone as Mama Who, Nancy Snow Carr as Grandma Who, and Steve Gunderson as Old Max.

The cast also includes Gavin August, Emily Sade Bautista, Jacob Caltrider, Josette Candelaria, Sadie Tess Coleman, Taylor Coleman, Giovanni Cozic, Charlie Garton, Elisa Guerra, Krysten Hafso Koppman, Hayden Hartpence, Corey Jones, Breanna Laureti, Lindsay Mains, Levi Laden, Lauren Livia Muehl, Faith Nibbe, Kayla Pak, Viviana Peji, Daebreon Poiema, Claire Scheper, Edred Utomi, Kelsey Venter, and Josh Perry Wishchuk.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS is directed by James Vasquez, with original direction and conception by Jack O'Brien, original choreography by John DeLuca, additional choreography by Bob Richard, musical direction by Elan McMahan, scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Robert Morgan, lighting design by Pat Collins, and sound design by Paul Peterson.
