Diamonds and Gold and Festival Foods present Let Me Be Frank Productions’ all-new comedy musical, “The Manitowoc Munsters,” September 16th through October 8th at the Meyer Theatre.
Remember “The Munsters” TV show? Well, they’re actually from Manitowoc. Herman, Lily, Marilyn, Grandpa, and Eddie Munster receive a letter letting them know their long-lost relative, Ana Munster from Transylvania, will be coming to live with them in the great state of Wisconsin. Upon arrival, Ana meets Paul, a local Fuller Brush salesman who quickly sets his sights on wooing the new girl. While Ana’s arrival seems harmless at first, she may have some ulterior motives for her stay at the Munster household. With the help of Paul, Ana crafts a plan to unearth some hidden money on the property. Why does Ana need the money, and will her plan work to get some secrets out of the Munster family? You’ll have to see in our brand-new show!
“The Manitowoc Munsters” opens Friday, September 16th, with a benefit show for NEWCAP inc. NEWCAP’s mission for half a century has been to move people from poverty to opportunities and economic security, while enhancing community development.
