We like to think of ourselves as theater for non-theater people. If you combine an episode of Saturday Night Live with a pop concert, you might have an idea of what a Let Me Be Frank Productions show includes. Let Me Be Frank Productions has been entertaining N.E. Wisconsin for nearly two decades. Since beginning in 2000, we have shared over 120 different shows to over 300,000 audience members – and we’re still going strong! We are fast becoming people’s most favorite theater destination in Wisconsin. Our all-original musicals will have you wowing at the talent, laughing in the aisle and singing a tune of yesteryear on your way home. With titles like, “Something Stinks in Kaukauna” and “Shaken Not Stirred Clintonville” we invite you to come and join in on the fun at the historic Meyer Theatre in downtown Green Bay. See you at the show!

Growing up with Frank (Beav) and Heath was quite the experience. My childhood was a blur then all of the sudden this 16 year old punk who thought he knew it all saw Mary, the most beautiful girl in the world sitting in an English class at Bayport High School on his first day of his 2nd year of 10th grade! My wife Mary and I now have 3 awesome children Sarah, Michaela, and Michael along with 5 spectacular grandchildren. Who would have thought I’d be lucky enough to work with my bro and others doing a tribute to George Jones. I also enjoy being part owner of Frankly Green Bay. My real job though is at BelGioioso Cheese.

She’s had a camera in hand since she was about 15 years old but never thought it would ever turn into a part time profession. When she isn’t behind the lens, she works at Rhyme Business Products. You may recognize her last name too – she’s the wife of “Mr. Orchestra” Tony Pilz! Together they have three children, Myranda, Justin and Madeline. Sue truly appreciates each and every cast member for letting a “newbie like me capture all the cast photos!”
