What's new? Here's a few things Bert is working on right now:
The Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce recognized Pantochino Productions, Jimmy Johansmeyer and myself with the Cultural Contribution Award of Distinction. We are thrilled with this honor!
“Cry-Baby” I fell in love with this musical instantly. Saw it on Broadway quite a few times and am thrilled to get to bring this to my Teen Theatre program in August 2019. #babybabybaby
“The Wicked Witch of the West Kansas or Bust” is getting it’s international debut this summer—in Canada! I’m also bringing the show back to Milford to open Pantochino’s 19/20 season. I can’t wait to work on this show again. I remember how the room shook with laughter from the audiences who saw its debut performances.
Everything has it’s time. I’m looking forward to telling the story of “Pippin” along with Pantochino’s Teen Theatre in Early 2020. I’ve always had a love for this Stephen Schwartz musical and for the work of Bob Fosse. I’m dedicating the show (and our 19/20 season) to the memory of my late friend Evan Faram.
“The Gingerbreads of Broadway” is something I am developing with my musical genius friends Justin Rugg and Jimmy Johansmeyer. We’re weaving every backstage musical together, along with some holiday cheer to tell the story of a gingerbread cookie family and their journey from vaudeville to the great white way. Cannot wait!!!
