Award-winning Pantochino Productions Inc, Milford's professional not for profit theatre company is currently registering young actors age 8-12yo for its after school performance class in their studios at the Connecticut Post Mall.
Producers Jimmy Johansmeyer and Bert Bernardi have boasted a rousing response to the "Jack and the Beanstalk and Zombies" program which begins in September. The hour-long, once a week class offered over 8 weeks, culminates in a performance of the mini-musical at the MAC, Milford Arts Council in early November. Similar to Pantochino's Summer Theatre Camp, the session allows young actors to learn, rehearse and perform an original musical theatre play.
"Our Wednesday class reached capacity very quickly" said Bernardi. "We have added a Tuesday class and are already close to being full." he added. The class will be lead by Christina Ronquillo and Pantochino's resident musical director Justin Rugg.
