Children's Theatre Company (CTC) is bringing back the holiday classic Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. BroadwayWorld has a first look at highlights from the show below.
This season the role of the Grinch falls on CTC Company member Reed Sigmund. This will be Sigmund's first time playing the iconic Grinch, and for a self-described "Ultimate Who", it will be quite the challenge. Sigmund exclaims, "I love Christmas. I love the food. I love the tunes. I love the movies. I love the lights. I love the decorations. I love the traditions. I love the way it makes me feel. I can't help it. I am filled with a combination of elation, excitement, and pure fear. Whether it's the Grinch, the Cowardly Lion, or Ernie from Sesame Street, these roles carry a strong sense of expectation from an audience. They are beloved characters with amazing histories and I never want to disappoint those people who cherish these figures as much as I do."
Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas runs now through December 30 on the UnitedHealth Group Stage. For more information visit us online at childrenstheatre.org or call the Ticket Office at 612.874.0400.
