This coming weekend THE GRUNCH will premiere at the Children’s Musical Theater Festival, presented by The Broadway Workshop. Twenty-five kids from around the world auditioned to be part of the festival that takes place in midtown Manhattan. They have one week to memorize, choreograph and rehearse the entire show. Performances take place Saturday, July 21st at 3pm and Sunday, July 22nd at 1pm at the Baruch College Nagelberg Theatre, located at 55 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. For tickets, click here.
