Toms River — The Ocean County College Repertory Theatre Co. will take to the stage at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts on the OCC main campus in Toms River beginning July 11 for the summer musical “Into the Woods,” an epic fairytale about wishes, choices and family.

“‘Into the Woods’ is the story of a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk,” the college explains. “When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the spell. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later.”

Music and lyrics were penned by Stephen Sondheim, with book by James Lapine. Paul Chalakani directs the musical at the Grunin Center.

Performances are as follows: Thursdays, July 11 and 18, and Fridays, July 12, and 19, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, July 13 and 20, at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, July 14 and 21, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $26 for adults and $17 for seniors. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call the Grunin Center at 732-255-0500 or visit grunincenter.org. —J.K.-H.
