The Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts - Man of La Mancha - July 13, 2018 through July 22, 2018
OCC Repertory Theatre Company Presents:

Man of La Mancha is one of the world's most popular musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself Don Quixote and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world.

Featuring classic numbers including The Impossible Dream, Don Quixote, Dulcinea, I Really Like Him and Little Bird, the story transforms the prisoners and touches the audience.
