(Manasquan, NJ) -- The long awaited production of Man of La Mancha opened September 23 at the Algonquin Arts Theatre and has performances on September 24-25; September 30; and October 1-2. The show is presented by the award winning Shore Repertory Theatre Company and will be directed and produced by New Jersey Association of Community Theatres (NJACT) award winner Gina Lupi and musically directed by NJACT award winner Tony Didia.

This five-time Tony Award winner is the epic story of knight-errant Don Quixote, his servant Sancho, and the woman of his dreams, the lovely Dulcinea.

The impeccable score includes The Impossible Dream, Dulcinea, and the title song, also known as I, Don Quixote.

Starring as Don Quixote is Jan Topoleski of Brick. Allison Foote of Middletown plays Aldonza ("Dulcinea"), and Sam Rosalsky of Berkeley Heights will play Sancho Panza. Supporting leads are played by Mark Megill of Manasquan as the Innkeeper, Joseph Ficarra of Beachwood as The Duke and Gary Alan Powell of Toms River as the Padre.
