Go see the student art: I am a firm believer that it is a good thing for young students of the arts – music, theater, visual art, or otherwise – to have opportunities to display their creative endeavors to the wider public.

Based on the classic Dr. Seuss classic story, “The Grinch” lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mount Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Whoville when he runs out of food. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.
