The Ocean County College Repertory Theatre Co. is bringing its production of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” to the Black Box Theatre at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts. Shows begin this Thursday, Dec. 6, and run through Dec. 16.

“In this hilarious and heartwarming tale, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids – possibly the most inventively awful kids in history,” the college notes. “You won’t believe the mayhem, and the fun, when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!”

Will Salmons directs the production, based on a book penned by Barbara Robinson in 1971.

Performances are as follows: Dec. 6 and 7 at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., Dec. 9 at 2 p.m., Dec. 13 and Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Dec. 16 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors, and can be purchased online at grunincenter.org, by phone at 732-255-0500 or in person at the Grunin Center Box Office.

The Grunin Center is located on the OCC main campus, on College Drive in Toms River.—J.K.-H.
