A Dream Is A Wish Princess Holiday Concert, Philadelphia Wings Season Opener, and 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' at the Merriam Theater


Once upon a BEN Around Philly episode, Kristen is visited by three fairytale princesses. The Philadelphia Theater Company’s A Dream Is A Wish: Princess Holiday Concert returns to the Suzanne Roberts Theater on South Broad Street for ONE DAY ONLY - Sunday, December 16th, and Shawn Stone - the director of Marketing for the Philadelphia Theater Company, along with Heather Sawyer (Mulan), Emily Morales (Moana), and Becca Weintraub (Sophia) join Kristen in studio to give a preview of the show. Families will see Cinderella, Princess Sophia, Belle, Ariel, Mulan, Elsa, Anna, Moana, Cinderella and Rapunzel, all in one show! Tickets are $35 and are available at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre box office, online at philatheatreco.org, or by phone 215-985-0420. This show sold out last year, so get your tickets sooner than later. There are 2 performances - 3pm and 6pm.

Then Matt Cord & Kristen Herrmann speak with Anthony Joaquim and Chris Cloutier, players on the new Philadelphia Wings team. The WINGS season home opener vs. the Buffalo Bandits is this Saturday, December 15th at the Wells Fargo Center. There are a limited number of $18 tickets available at WINGSLAX.com.
And while you’re there, keep an eye out for Wingston, the new mascot for the Wings!

Unfortunately, the show wraps on a sour note. Foul even. The Grinch himself stops by to talk with Matt & Kristen about his upcoming show at the Merriam Theater. ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ is a musical, and it’s all about him… the Grinch. Just in time for Christmas, and running December 19-29th, tickets are available at KimmelCenter.org. While the Grinch was surprisingly nice to interview, even so… the three words that best describe him are as follows, and we quote,"Stink, stank, stunk"! The show will be great though.
