The Old Globe to Present Autism-Friendly Performance of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

By San Diego
The Old Globe will present an autism-friendly performance of its upcoming production of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, December 5 at 10:30am. The production will run November 17-December 29 on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage. James Vasquez will direct.

Featuring a book and lyrics by Timothy Mason and music by Mel Marvin, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a whimsical musical based upon the classic Dr. Seuss book. It features the songs "This Time of Year," "Santa for a Day" and "Fah Who Doraze."

The autism friendly performance will be performed in a friendly and supportive environment for children on the autism spectrum and their families. Slight adjustments will be made to the production including fewer loud noises and flashing lights. Additionally, a pre-show visit to the Globe will be offered to familiarize children with the space, and an online social story will also be available for parents to view and print at home that will outline in words and pictures the experience that families will undergo at the performance.
