OCC Repertory Theatre Company Presents "Kiss Me, Kate" at Grunin Center

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- The Ocean County College Repertory Theatre Company will present Kiss Me, Kate July 14-16 and 21-23 on the Main Stage at the Grunin Center for the Arts, located on the main campus of Ocean County College. The first Broadway show ever to win the Tony Award for Best Musical, Kiss Me, Kate tells the story of feuding former spouses forced to play opposite each other in a production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

Sophisticated, romantic and delightfully hilarious, the classic Broadway hit boasts a brilliant book from Sam and Bella Spewack and a sparkling Cole Porter score that features such gems as “Another Op’nin, Another Show,” “So In Love,” and the great second act opener, “Too Darn Hot,” which sets the place on fire! 

“Kiss Me, Kate” is directed by OCC College Lecturer Paul Chalakani and choreographed by OCC alumna Mallory Tonra. Musical director is area favorite Cindy Dwyer. The production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC.

Performances take place Friday, July 14 at 7:30pm; Saturday, July 15 at 7:30pm; Sunday, July 16 at 2:00pm; Friday, July 21 at 7:30pm; Saturday, July 22 at 2:00pm & 7:30pm; and Sunday, July 23 at 2:00pm.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors and $18 for students. For tickets, visit grunincenter.org or call the Grunin Center Box Office at 732-255-0500.
