Where to find the Grinch in Indianapolis this season

/, Local XOXO/Where to find the Grinch in Indianapolis this season

He’s a mean one, that Mr. Grinch. And while this time of year heightens the grump in many of us {wait, we have HOW many people to shop for?} the holidays are just incomplete without everyone’s favorite grump. Special thanks to Broadway Across Indianapolis for sponsoring this all-things-Grinch guide! 


Is it just us or is the Grinch beginning to rival Santa for the number of events and appearances in Indianapolis this year? The famed Dr. Seuss character sure seems to be offering many opportunities for a meet – all starting with the Dr. Seuss How The Grinch Stole Christmas musical.

Details: Re-discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale as it comes to life on stage! Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming holiday classic. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday loving Whos. This show appears at Murat Theatre at Old National Centre from November 27-December 2. Tickets start at $40. Grab yours here.
