Diamonds and Gold present Let Me Be Frank's brand new comedy musical “Rattle Those Pots and Pans, Mirro Style.â€ The show runs at the Meyer Theatre September 23 — October 15. Shows run Thursday — Saturday at 8 p.m. with a matinee on Saturday, October 15 at 1 p.m. MIrro at one time was the largest employer in Manitowoc County; makers of cookware, pressure cookers, cookie cutters and boats. They were the aluminum king when Kingsbury was the king of beers in Manitowoc.
Let Me Be Franks takes you back to the early '80s when the Newell Corporation bought out The Mirro Corporation. Manitowoc was a blur of activity in the '80s with a booming music and manufacturing scene. Paul Ferguson, (Frank) plays the CEO of Newell Rubbermaid; he goes undercover to snoop around Manitowoc and find out what it's like to work at Mirro. Posing as a United Steel Union worker, Paul hits the taverns and discovers the ins and outs about the home of the Pressure Cooker. Well let's just say there are a few pressure cookers ready to blow in the break room. Meet a cast of characters that will leave you in stitches.
Cast includes Frank Hermas, Heath Hermans, Amy Riemer, Kasey Corrado, Lisa Borley, Tom Verbrick and Pat Hibbard with band mates Dennis Panneck, Tony Pilz and Adam Cain. Choreography by Kristin Melotte.
