A touring musical production of “The Grinch” story will hit a stage in Vancouver several weeks before Christmas.

The dates are Nov. 14-18 for seven performances of “Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical” at The Centre in Vancouver.

Based on the popular book and TV show, the 85-minute production (no intermission) will include memorable songs such as “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas.” Max the Dog narrates as the mean, scheming Grinch aims to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos.

Innovation Arts and Entertainment presents the holiday musical, directed by Matt August, choreographed by Bob Richard and set-designed by John Lee Beatty.

Tickets start at $68 on, or call 604-263-2314. Show details are on
