A Jazz & Christmas Event with the Grinch!

Dear Parents and Friends,

You are invited to join us for a unique jazz and Christmas evening on Thursday, December 16!

Thanks to the generosity of Bill and Kristi Heeter, Eagle Hall will serve to display a museum-quality collection of limited-addition animation cels from the iconic film, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, based on the book by Dr. Seuss.*

The evening will include:

  • great jazz–sprinkled with Christmas and Grinch themes
  • viewing the exhibit of 25+ film cels
  • a short presentation by Craig Kausen on his grandfather, Chuck Jones, and transforming the book into an animated film
  • a viewing of the classic (and subtly profound) short film, How the Grinch Stole Christmas

~~This is an adults only event and space will be limited. Please RSVP.~~


We look forward to seeing you!

* The exhibit will be at the school for several days and students will have opportunities to view the exhibit and many will also engage in a presentation and art workshops with Craig Kausen.
