Grinch Invades Grand Ole Opry House

Returning for the second year in a row, and running until December 25th at the Grand Ole Opry House, the lovable character who tried to steal Christmas makes a reappearance in “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical!”

This record-setting Broadway show stars Stephen Bishop, who also portrayed Inspector Javert in “Les Miserables” and Gaston in “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”.  With the show performing for ninety minutes, Bishop remains on stage a whopping eighty-seven of them.

Looking “meaner and greener,” the Broadway Actor reprises the title role of the Grinch and was quoted as admitting, “This is probably the most fun I’ve ever had in any role.”

Timothy Mason provides the lyrics, and Mel Marvin adds the music for the performance.  “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical!” also features the famous songs “Welcome Christmas” and the iconic “”You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch” that were written by Dr. Seuss and Albert Hague.

Possessing a distinctive bass voice, Nashville’s own W. Scott Stewart portrays “Old Max” the dog, who also narrates the story in which the Grinch sneaks around stealing presents as Stewart sings.

Presented as part of “A Country Christmas” at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, the musical is based on Theodore Geisel’s (Dr. Seuss) 1957 book.

The falling snow prop is sure to please younger audience members, and older ones will have fond recollections of the original “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” to recall.  At most performances, two or three generations attend the musical presentations together making the event a family affair.
