Discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, on stage at the Grand Ole Opry House. New in 2015 to Gaylord Opryland's A Country Christmas, this record-setting Broadway sensation features the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas” from the original animated television special. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday loving Whos. Don’t miss what The New York Times calls “AN EXTRAORDINARY PERFORMANCE! 100 times better than any bedside story.”
