PARAMUS, N.J. – Before “American Idol” and “The Voice,” there was “The Gong Show.” And it’s coming to Bergen Community College.

A live, stage version of the zany, 1970s talent show will play two nights in the Anna Maria Ciccone Theatre this month – Friday, Sept. 16 and Saturday, Sept. 17. Both performances will take place in the theatre, located at 400 Paramus Road, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for general admissions. Senior citizens and College faculty, staff and students receive discounts. To purchase tickets, visit tickets.bergen.edu or call (201) 447-7428.

A Radiochick Production, in association with Sony Television Pictures​, this official off-Broadway adaptation of the television show comes to Bergen after a successful three-year stint in New York City.
