Marie Curie Third Grader to Star in This Year’s Old Globe’s

‘The Grinch that Stole Christmas’

Marie Curie Elementary Third Grader and University City resident, Lilith Freund will be one of the two Cindy Lou Who’s in this year’s Old Globe’s production of ‘The Grinch that Stole Christmas’. Lilith has been a lover of Theater from a young age. She has performed in all the last three year’s annual Curie Play, and has a lead role in her 2nd Grade class production of ‘The Castaways’ last year. She was beyond excited to receive the news that she would be sharing the stage this year with The Grinch. Not at all scared of the big green guy, she felt finally there was someone out there she could infuse with her love of life and joy of singing and dancing. She hopes The Grinch will not be so mean after she has her time with him!
