For a decade, Pantochino’s Teen Theater has given local young people a chance to be creative and have fun while learning stagecraft from professionals. The program was never more appreciated than last summer. After a year of enduring the pandemic, campers were eager to attend the program hailed as “The Most Fun. Ever!”

In 2021, the Pantochino Teen Theater summer program brought smiles to faces with “The SpongeBob Musical.” The production, supported in part by a Small Grant from The Community Foundation, expanded its typical audience, reaching more than 600 in attendance.

Pantochino Productions is Milford's professional theatre company offering classes, camps in addition to its season of shows. The teen camp is a two-week immersive experience that involves putting on a full-scale musical theater show. The campers are exposed to all aspects of the projection, working with professional actors, designers, composers and choreographers to learn all aspects of a production, including direction, design, choreography.
