Members of the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center’s Rising Stars program presented “The Grunch: A New Children’s Musical” to family, friends and the community Saturday at the OPAC, delivering a new twist on the traditional summer music. “The Grunch,” inspired by Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” takes viewers on a journey through the story of grouch sixth-grader Rudy Grunch and his plan to steal the components of his school’s musical before the spirit of the theatre makes him think twice.
