Pantochino Teen Theatre


Award-winning Pantochino Productions Inc, Milford’s professional not-for-profit theatre company, is currently accepting registration for it’s Teen Theatre production of “Shark Attack! The Musical” to be performed in late February 2017.

Pantochino Teen Theatre is designed to give young actors, ages 12 to 18, the opportunity to learn and work with theatre professionals in creating a fully realized musical production. The immersive theatrical experience is under the direction of Bert Bernardi and Jimmy Johansmeyer with musical direction by Justin Rugg and choreography by Becki Walter.  The program is sponsored by The Milford Bank.

“Shark Attack! The Musical!” is subtitled as the Unofficial Sharknado Parody. It is a  pop/rock send up of the cult film “Sharknado.” Sharp-witted, irreverent and meteorologically inaccurate, the comedy is about a freak hurricane of sharks raining down on Los Angeles. This premiere production features music and lyrics by Jordan Wolfe, originally from Westport, and book by Patrick Robert Kelley.

Pantochino Teen Theatre rehearsals take place on Saturdays in January and February, and are held at Pantochino Studios in the former St. Ann School on Ridge Street in Milford. Performances on February 24th and 25th, take place at the Center for the Arts in Downtown Milford.

“Teen Theatre is our fastest-growing program,” said Bernardi. “Following our summer production of “Urinetown, the Musical” we have already registered over twenty participants for “Shark Attack!” and only five spots remain, he added. Every young actor who registers gets a part in the show.

Pantochino Teen Theater is a tuition-based program. There are no registration fees, advertising commitments or hidden costs. Those interested must register before December 1st. More information and registration forms are available online at or call Pantochino at 203-937-6206.
