Also, Beginning on December 10 and 11 and continuing daily from December 17 through January 1, 2012, a very, merry “Grinchmas” returns to Universal Studios Hollywood as the theme park rings in a jolly Who-liday season with the Grinch, his faithful dog Max, tons of fresh snow and nightly celebrity readings of the Dr. Seuss classic, “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” A whimsical, curving “Grinchmas” tree will tower 60 feet above the center of a snow-covered winter wonderland and will be lit in nightly ceremonies that will feature a colorfully costumed Who-ville choir caroling and spreading holiday cheer. The Grinch and Max will star with the Whos in these enchanting Who-bilation performances.
Prior to select “Who-billations” and tree-lightings, celebrities from the worlds of film, television and music will take the stage to help Universal Studios Hollywood celebrate “Grinchmas” as they share their entertaining interpretations of the heart-warming tale of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
Throughout “Grinchmas,” the Grinch, Max and the Who-ville Whos will be on hand and paw to meet fans and take memorable holiday photos, while families gather to enjoy traditional winter fun, romping together in a playground of real snow, made fresh daily, and building their own Southern Californian snowmen.
“Grinchmas” will also provide fans of the blockbuster movie a close-up view of the original Who-ville film sets, featured in the “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” movie, aboard the world-famous behind-the-scenes Studio Tour. As the tram rolls to a stop amid the fanciful Who-ville buildings, guests will experience a one-of-a-kind performance by a Whos Who of Who-ville re-enacting favorite scenes and songs from the film.
“Grinchmas” is included in the price of theme park admission. More information, including updates on the “Grinchmas” celebrity readings, will be available at www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com.
