The Grinch is making his way to MediaCityUK for the opening of Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical

A Journey Full of Mischief for The Grinch as he makes his way to The Lowry for the opening of Dr Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical. Opening Next Week on Tuesday 10 December.


Passengers on a tram to MediaCityUK did a double take as mischief-maker The Grinch stepped aboard.

Those riding the tram fell victim to his playful ways with one passenger’s journey soundtrack interrupted as her headphones were knocked away.

The well-known character has returned to the city ahead of Dr Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical opening at The Lowry. The record-setting Broadway sensation will bring seasonal musical merriment to Salford for a special Christmas season, starting from Tuesday 10 December 2019 and running through until Sunday 5 January 2020.

Featuring the hit songs ‘You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch’ and ‘Welcome Christmas’, Max the Dog narrates the show, as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is two sizes too small, decides to steal Christmas away from the Holiday loving Whos.

Magnificent sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations help transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville, breathing life into this timeless story and conjuring the true meaning of Christmas.

The 2019 production is based on the show originally created by three-time Tony Award winning director, Jack O’Brien. The UK creative team features Set Design by John Lee Beatty, Lighting Design by Ben Cracknell, Sound Design by Richard Brooker, Costume Design by Robert Morgan and Michael Starobin is the show’s Orchestrator.

The show broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway. Since then, more than two million people across America have been thrilled by this heart-warming musical.
