PORKENSTEIN to Open 10/19 at Milford Center for the Arts
Award-winning Pantochino Productions Inc. will open its new family musical, "Porkenstein," on October 19th for a limited engagement at the Milford Center for the Arts on Railroad Avenue in Milford, Connecticut.
"Porkenstein" is based on the popular book by Kathryn Lasky and features book and lyrics by Bert Bernardi and music by Justin Rugg. The story follows Doctor Pig as he works in his laboratory in hopes of creating a new, 'wolf-proof' friend in time for Halloween. Along with his assistant, he makes a series of scientific blunders and eventually invents an enormous super-pig. Filled with laughter and original songs, the new musical proves that friendships comes in all shapes, sizes and appetites!
"It's a fun-filled, musical mash-up of The Three Little Pigs and the legend of Frankenstein" says Bernardi. "Audiences of all ages are going to love it!" he added.
"Porkenstein" opens Pantochino's 2013/14 season which features three original musicals for family audiences. "We're very excited to be in Milford for our entire third season." said Pantochino's Jimmy Johansmeyer who not only will design costumes for the show but also plays the comical villain, B. B. Wolf.
