"GLAM KITTY SQUAD:" ON THE PROWL FOR FUN AND PROFIT
Imagine three pretty little kitties who are models of decorum and innocence by day but who morph by night into crime-stopping heroines. Hold on to your fur and feathers because the writing team of Bert Bernardi, for book and lyrics, and Justin Rugg for music, has penned a new musical spoof for Pantochino Productions. "Glam Kitty Squad" will prowl across the stage of the Milford Center for the Arts on Railroad Avenue in Milford weekends until Sunday, April 7 with an added show at Waterbury's Seven Angels Theatre on Saturday, April 13 at 11 a.m.
Think "Charlie's Angels" and "Batman" and campy take-offs meant to inspire memories and insure laughter and you have "Glam Kitty Squad" that will feature new adventures and different characters for every performance, like a game of Clue running wild. The whole family will be amused, assures Bert Bernardi, director. "In the first act, the kitties seek out a mysteriously missing and treasured trinket while the second act is a hilarious canary caper, complete with flying feathers. It's truly a laugh-a-minute show for audiences of all ages to enjoy."
Jimmy Johanmeyer will design all the 'glam' costumes as well as star along with Mary Mannix, Shelley Marsh Poggio, Peyton Lott and Jennifer Smith. Composer/musical director Justin Rugg will also find time to portray a comic villain. Von Del Mar will create the sets and Joey Moro will design the lighting.
For tickets ($16), call 203-937-6206 or go online to www.pantochino.com. Performances are Saturday, March 30 at 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., Friday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 7 at 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. The productions are at 40 Railroad Avenue in Milford until April 7 and on April 13 at 1 Plank Road, Waterbury.
