Living alone with his his loyal dog Max in the dark caves of Mount Crumpit, the Grinch is a lonely a miserable creature who absolutley despises Christmas. When he hears the Christmas excitement from his cave, he decides to steal anything related to Christmas from the dwellers of Whoville. Disguising himself as Santa Clause and stealing from them during the night, he is briefly interrupted by a little girl Cindy Lou, but lies to her about his identity.
In the morning, the Grinch is puzzled to hear the people of Whoville respond to his bitterness with joyous Christmas songs. He then realises that perhaps there is more to Christmas than just presents; there is kindness and the act of giving. At the beginning of the musical we learn that the Grinch's heart is ‘two sizes two small’, but by the end his heart grows considerably...
