The Grunch Musical Theatre Workshop

Program: September 12, 2023 - March 20, 2024
Performance: March 21 - 24, 2024 at Pal Studio Theatre

Grade 4 to 10 students will work as actors learning the fundamentals of musical theatre through weekly rehearsals before performing six public performances. Each performance is a one-hour full-stage musical production of The Grunch, Winner of New York Children‘s Musical Festival.


Inspired by “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, The Grunch tells the story of Rudy Grunch, a grumpy 6th grader who always feels like an outsider. When the entire school gets excited about the annual school musical, he comes up with a perfect plan to ruin it for everyone; he’ll steal the sets, costumes and lights the night before it opens. But will the spirit of theatre prevail?
