‘Man of La Mancha’ Sings Its Way Onto Grunin Center Stage

Jun 27, 2018

See the Ocean County College Repertory Theatre Co. perform “Man of La Mancha” in July at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at OCC. The popular musical is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote, and set during the Spanish Inquisition.

As the college summarizes, “Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself Don Quixote and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world.

“Featuring classic numbers including ‘The Impossible Dream,’ ‘I, Don Quixote,’ ‘Dulcinea,’ ‘I Really Like Him’ and ‘Little Bird,’ the story transforms the prisoners and touches the audience.”

Performance dates and times are as follows: July 13, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m.; July 14 and 21 at 8 p.m.; and July 15 and 22 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $26 for adults and $17 for seniors. Call the box office at 732-255-0500 for group and student rates.

The Grunin Center is located on the OCC main campus, on College Drive in Toms River.
