I can't confess to know what "The Grrrrinch: A Christmas in Whoville" is all about. I'm a 95 Rock guy and I have a good handle on music, dance not so much, but this does look like something your kids would love.

The Western Colorado Dance Theater is a new Grand Junction nonprofit and will present performances of its inaugural production on December 22nd-23rd at 7 pm, the historic Avalon Theatre in downtown Junction. Reserved seats will cost between $12-$20.

For those like me that aren't familiar, “The Grrrrinch, a Christmas in Whoville” features the beloved characters based on the classic tale. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this unique twist on the holiday favorite. The production will also include excerpts from another holiday tradition, "The Nutcracker". Again, sounds like a cool way for you and your family to celebrate the holidays.

If the 22-23rd dates don't work, you can take in the performance at 7 pm Friday and Saturday, December 18–19th, and 2 pm Saturday and Sunday, the 19–20th, at the Robinson Theatre in the Moss Performing Arts Center at Colorado Mesa University.

According to the press release, more than 50 local youth and adult dancers are cast in the production and “elaborate, color-bursting Suess-inspired costumes will dazzle the stage.” The story is narrated by “Grandfather Grrrinch” and the ballet is set to music composed by Danny Elfman.


I'm thinking if I keep shooting you guys this stuff to do with the famil,y it just may score you some points with the wife or girlfriend. Trust me, the holidays are much more fun if she's happy. Who knows, you find her in some stockings this holiday!
