UTICA — Celebrating its 60th anniversary, Broadway Utica presented Dr. Seuss’ holiday classic “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on Tuesday night at the Stanley Center for the Arts.

Featuring the hit songs “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” the Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this holiday classic.

The story, which is narrated by Max the Dog, tells how the scheming Grinch decides to steal Christmas away from Whoville.

Sauquoit resident Tija Marcello attended the show with four generations of family members, including her 5-year-old daughter.

“Every year my grandmother takes all of the girls in the family to see a show here,” Marcello said.

The show was her daughter Gianna’s first time at The Stanley Center for the Arts.

More than 90 percent of the seats were filled for opening night, according to Derek Clark, executive director of the Broadway Theater League.

Another showing of the classic is set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets are available at broadwayutica.com or call 315-724-7196. They range from $24.25 to $69.25 per ticket.
