By Juilet Kaszas-Hoch | Dec 02, 2019

Toms River — Yates Musical Theatre for Children will once again bring the traditional holiday tale “A Christmas Carol” to life on the main stage of the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts, at Ocean County College. The performance, sponsored by RWJBarnabas Health Community Medical Center as part of its Family Series, is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.

The show is a musical adaptation of the tale of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who hated Christmas. On Christmas Eve, three ghosts take him on a journey. During his nighttime reflection into the past, the present and the future, Scrooge witnesses the lives of his poor office clerk, Bob Cratchit, and the crippled Tiny Tim.

“Yates Musical Theatre takes these unforgettable characters from the page to the stage, with a melodious score – for a beautiful present of a production,” OCC notes. “Join us for a heartwarming theater experience that is sure to put everyone in the spirit of the season.”

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children, and can be purchased online at grunincenter.org; by phone at 732-255-0500; or in person at the Grunin Center Box Office.

That night, the Ocean County College Concert Band, conducted by Anthony Tafrow, will take the stage at 7 for its annual holiday show. “Home for the Holidays” features a timeless selection of seasonal favorites. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $12 for students.

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