Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Grinchmas” Celebration Universal City, California – is the theme park’s 18-day “Grinchmas” celebration, beginning December 11 and 12 and continuing daily from December 18 through January 2, 2011. The Grinch and Max will be on hand to meet fans and take memorable holiday photos. Families will also be able to enjoy traditional winter fun, romping together in a playground of snow and building their own snowmen.
Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood, The Entertainment Capital of L.A., will enliven the holiday season with the Grinch, his faithful dog Max, tons of fresh snow and a “Whoville Whobilation” at the original movie sets where the classic “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” was filmed. “Grinchmas” will immerse guests in a festive holiday atmosphere.
Celebrities from the worlds of film, television and music will help Universal Studios Hollywood guests celebrate the holiday season—and encourage families to read together—with nightly readings of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”
Among the first celebrities set to appear at the event are “True Blood” star Stephen Moyer on Dec. 11 and Jeffrey Tambor, who portrayed the Mayor of Whoville in the blockbuster film, “Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” on Dec. 12. Other stars include recording artist Brandy on Dec. 18, actor Fred Willard and “Tonight Show” band musical director, Rickey Minor on Dec. 19, and Joey Lawrence and Tippi Hedren on Dec. 20.
A whimsical, curving “Grinchmas” tree will tower 60 feet above the center of a snow-covered “Grinchmas” winter wonderland and will be lit in a nightly tree-lighting ceremony that will feature a colorfully costumed “Whoville” choir caroling and spreading holiday cheer.
“Grinchmas” will also provide fans of the blockbuster movie a close-up view of the original “Whoville” film sets, featured in the classic “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” aboard the world-famous behind-the-scenes Studio Tour. As the tram rolls to a stop amid the fanciful “Whoville” buildings, guests will experience a one-of-a-kind performance by “Whoville’s” residents re-enacting favorite scenes and songs from the film. “Grinchmas” is included in the price of theme park admission. Guests who attend Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Grinchmas” celebration will be able to purchase the “Buy a Day and get 2011 Free” annual pass, a tremendous value allowing them to visit Universal Studios Hollywood throughout the coming year.
