We were fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to catch up with the Grinch after rehearsal and managed to get the DIRT on all his nasty, wasty, tangled-up, mangled-up mischief this holiday season! After all, audience members are itching to know!
Well . . . at first I thought it was all about presents, but now I’m beginning to think it might be cookies. I do have to admit, I love biting the heads off of all the gingerbread men and leaving the rest for old Fatso and that chipper wife of his.
Can you explain to us why you dislike Alice so much?
That’s easy. She’s joyous, happy, and is always spoiling my fun by stealing my spotlight or foiling my plans! Life is far more cruel when she is not there… and you know how I love a cruel, cruel world!
What is your favorite holiday song?
Monster Mash . . . talk about the perfect holiday toe-tapper!
What can our audiences expect from your performance this year?
This year I have devised an appalling new plan to be extra mean and steal what cheery Mrs. Claus loves the most – and it’s NOT her Mistletoe Margarita. We’ll see if sweet little Alice can stop this one!
When you are not stomping around in Wonderland, what do you enjoy doing?
I like long walks on the beach and reading romantic novels. I’m a softy when I’m off the job! Oh wait, you aren’t going to publish that one are you??
See the Grinch in action at Once Upon A Holiday December 16-18! Tickets go on sale November 15th at www.sidewaysdance.org.
