The Old Globe Theatre is set to kick off the 2013 holiday season with a top-notch stage production of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. San Diegans take their Seuss seriously, which is why this whimsical musical is returning for its 16th year. Featuring familiar favorites like “This Time of Year,” “Santa for a Day” and “Fah Who Doraze,” this musical is ideal for families and all ages. Transport yourself to snow-covered Whoville for a night of singing and laughter for all!
The Old Globe Theatre location is a reason in itself to attend this musical event. With a perfect rating of 5 on TripAdvisor, travelers from all over the world recommend this venue as one of the top three must-see attractions in San Diego. Built in 1935 for the intended purpose of presenting abridged versions of Shakespeare’s plays, “The Old Globe has [since] been home to the most acclaimed national artists, designers, directors and playwrights in the theatre industry” (theoldglobe.com). More than twenty productions produced at The Old Globe have gone on to play on and off-Broadway! The Globe is one of San Diego’s largest arts institutions, its leading arts employer, and among the nation’s top-ranked regional theatres.
The Old Globe is located in the heart of Balboa Park, where your family will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beautiful holiday décor throughout the holiday season.
