“Grinchmas”TM returns to Universal Studios HollywoodSM as The Entertainment Capital of L.A.SM prepares for a lively holiday season with The Grinch, his faithful dog Max, tons of fresh snow, and nightly celebrity readings as part of the vibrant “Whobilation” tree lighting celebrations.
“Grinchmas” begins on the weekend of December 8 and 9, continues daily from December 15 to 31, 2012, and is included in the price of theme park admission.
At the heart of the snow-covered winter wonderland towers a whimsical, curving 60 foot tall “Grinchmas” tree surrounded by The Grinch, Max and a colorfully costumed Who-ville choir, caroling and spreading holiday cheer in enchanting “Whobilation” performances.
Prior to select “Whobilations” and tree-lightings, celebrities from the worlds of film, television and music will join the festivities to help Universal Studios Hollywood celebrate “Grinchmas” and read their entertaining interpretations of the heart-warming tale of Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
Throughout the event, 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 fresh, real snow.
“Grinchmas” will also provide fans of the blockbuster film 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 Who’s Who of Who-ville re-enacting favorite scenes and songs from the film.
