Award-winning Pantochino Productions Inc. has announced a deep discount for senior citizens and students for its new musical, “As Long As We’re Talking” for all performances June 24-26 at the MAC, Milford Arts Council on Railroad Avenue in Downtown Milford.
Inspired by actual events, “As Long As We’re Talking” is set in an urban LGBT book store where the cashier receives an urgent cry-for-help phone call from a young gay person about to end their life. It is up to the cashier, and the patrons shopping in the store to keep this person engaged, on the line and alive. The new musical is written by the team of Bert Bernardi (book and lyrics) and Justin Rugg (music), who’s most recent work, “Checking in on Charles,” played to sold out audiences.
Senior citizens and students (21 and under) may purchase $10.00 tickets at the door, 45-minutes prior to each performance. The deep discounted ticket cannot be purchased online.
“We want to make this show available and affordable for everyone to see,” said co-producer Bert Bernardi. “Its inspiring, uplifting and perfect for Pride Month.”
The production is sponsored by the Milford Prevention Council and a portion of all proceeds will benefit The Trevor Project.
