(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation is calling on all theater groups in Ocean and Monmouth Counties to participate in the next $10,000 competition, the Engage Toms River Giving Tuesday Theater Group Challenge. Theater groups must be a 501(c)(3) or a school to participate.

Ocean and Monmouth County theater groups who intend to compete must submit an audition video for a chance to perform at the $10,000 Giving Tuesday event which will take place on November 29, 2016, at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College. The top five groups will be chosen to perform a ten-minute scene from a musical comedy of their choice.  A $5,000 prize will be given to the adjudicator’s choice the night of the event.  Additionally, a $5,000 prize will be given to the winner of the people’s choice award, with voting taking place online, after the night of the performance.

Tickets to the event will be sold at $10 each and proceeds will be given to a non-profit, chosen by the winning theater group the night of the event.  Jeremy Grunin, Executive Director of the Foundation said, “It’s always fun for us to see the talent and creativity that emerge when we run our Engage Toms River competitions. This event is extra special as it ties in Giving Tuesday and the opportunity to make a positive impact and give back to our community.”
