This time last year, the Ocean City Theatre Company (OCTC) was canceling all programming and refunding tickets to its 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A year later, OCTC’s Artistic Director Michael Hartman announced that live theatre in Ocean City is back with the 2021 Summer Children’s Theatre Series at the Music Pier, according to an OCTC news release.

“Theatre is the perfect way to heal and unite our community. I am confident that our magical, creative, and entertaining musical season will be a return to normalcy for kids and families. These unique musicals also provide outstanding educational experiences that are based on children’s literature,” Hartman said.

OCTC’s Summer Children Series at the Music Pier will feature five fully staged family musicals on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. beginning July 6 until Aug. 3.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, May 24 at 9 a.m. All tickets are $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the show.

Due to current pandemic mitigation restrictions, seating is limited. Therefore, advance ticket purchases are encouraged. For a list of shows and to purchase tickets beginning on May 24, call 609-399-6111 or visit oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice.

Funding  has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Cape May County Board of County Commissioners through the Division of Culture & Heritage.
