The Old Globe announced today that its 23rd annual production of “Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” will be presented by KPBS Radio in San Diego as a free audio-only production. Due to the ongoing pandemic, The Old Globe is unable to produce the San Diego favorite on its stage this year. The free audio production of “Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! On the Radio” will pivot this San Diego tradition to a new form.
The performance can be heard on the radio in San Diego on KPBS 89.5 FM and can be streamed live on the KPBS website, on the KPBS app, and on smart speakers on Thursday, Nov. 26 (Thanksgiving Day) at 12 noon; Saturday, Dec. 5 at 12 noon; Sunday, Dec. 20 at 12 noon; and Thursday, Dec. 24 (Christmas Eve) at 6 p.m. All times are Pacific Standard Time (PT).
“KPBS is thrilled to partner with The Old Globe to bring “Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! On the Radio” to our San Diego airwaves,” said Tom Karlo, General Manager of KPBS. “It reminds me of when families would gather around the radio to listen to entertaining storytelling. I hope that in whatever manner families listen, they feel their hearts grow three sizes with joy in hearing this iconic story and sharing the experience alongside their community.”
