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, August 23.

When Radio Entertained People (WREP) consists of 10 talented actors who re-enact scripts from radio’s “Golden Age” of the 1940s and 1950s.

The troupe has performed at the Ocean County Library since its inception in 2008.
