Ocean County Library Toms River Branch Presents “When Radio Entertained People”

February 04, 2022

TOMS RIVER – Return to the era when families gathered around the wireless set for “theater of the imagination.” The Ocean County Library Toms River Branch will host a live presentation by When Radio Entertained People (WREP), 7 PM Wednesday, March 2.

When Radio Entertained People (WREP) consists of 10 talented actors who re-enact scripts from radio’s “Golden Age” of the 1940s and 1950s. Michael Glenn Miller, known to local audiences since 1972, leads the cast, many of whom have performed in motion pictures, television, and professional theatre.

The troupe, which has performed at the Ocean County Library since its inception in 2008, will return to the OCL stage after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

Attendees will be treated to a music and a trivia contest prior to the performance, which will feature episodes of The Thin Man, The Great Gildersleeve and The Life of Riley, complete with sound effects.

Registration is required for this free program. Sign up and see more details at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events or call the Toms River Branch, 732-349-6200.
