(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- Forget everything your granny told you about assisted living! See the hilarious Assisted Living: The Musical® on Saturday, September 22 at 2:00pm at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College. It's a 75-minute, one-act vaudevillian revue filled with original songs.
Assisted Living: The Musical® delivers laughs from the opening scene, when the show’s host couple enters heaven, suspecting their son pulled the plug to get his hands on Dad’s vintage Corvette. They don’t seem to mind. Instead, the couple fondly remembers Pelican Roost, an active, full-service retirement community, where 70-something is the new 20-something, and they party like it’s 1969!
Two actors play eighteen different characters who sing and dance, revel and kvetch, celebrate and bloviate their way through later life. You’ll laugh out loud to songs like “Help! I’ve Fallen (For You) And I Can’t Get Up” and “Golf Cart Seduction.” Assisted Living: The Musical® is for everyone who is aging: your parents, your friends, yourself.
Tickets are $27–$22 and can be purchased online at grunincenter.org; by phone at 732-255-0500; or in person at the Grunin Center Box Office, Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Student and group discounts available on select shows.
