The Old Globe is delighted to provide student matinee performances of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, called Seussabrations. Free tickets are provided to children enrolled in Title I schools in San Diego County.
Our goal is to make these tickets available to children who might not otherwise be able to attend.
Additionally, The Old Globe Education Department provides preparation activities for all schools attending our free student matinee Seussabrations. Attending a live theatrical performance is a powerful experience that is enhanced through planned activities and lessons. All teachers attending Grinch performances with their classes participate in a unique professional development workshop at The Old Globe. A study guide with lesson ideas tied to state curriculum standards is provided on this website. In addition, the Book Buddies program encourages children to pledge to read six books before seeing their performance of The Grinch as a way to cultivate a love of reading in students.
