On Saturday, November 14 at 7:00 p.m., Let Me Be Frank Productions presents it’s 16thSeason of Original Scripts for Musical Theater. This year the season opener is Rahr’s Beer and Prison City USA. The event will be held in the Waupun Historic City Hall Auditorium. Tickets are available on ticketstaronline.com for $20/$25. 

About Let Me Be Frank Productions Frank Herman’s first got involved in theater in middle school andthen later in high school and college. He lost track of theater trying to further his career in his twenties. Then in 1994 he saw that St.  Norbert was having auditions for “Joseph and the Amazing TechnicolorDream Coat”. He wanted the role of Joseph. Frank, Joe Kiedinger and Paul Desperito were called back for the lead role of Joseph. Frank was excited but being 6’3″ and 240 pounds he didn’t get the part. Hedid land the part of “Reuben” the eldest brother. It was probably the most influential time in his life. First he found out that he loved doing this theater stuff.
Second he met some of the most influential people in his life at that time. Joe Kiedinger, and the Birders, who run St. Norbert’s summer music theater.

Back to Frank’s good friend Joe Kiedinger; Frank called him one day and asked him to start a dinnertheater troupe with him, (Frank’s Dinner Theater). Joe did not hesitate. They called all their oldfriends from St. Norbert, UW-GB and all their other acting friends. Most of them joined and are still with Let Me Be Frank Productions today. Pat Hibbard and Frank write the shows now and no longerare they just doing review shows.  Now they are actually writing stories with music as the focus. Thefuture is very bright for Let Me Be Frank Productions. Their move to the Historic Meyer Theatre inGreen Bay only solidifies their place in the theater history of North Eastern WI.

Frank’s Dinner Theater’s first show was the “Temp” in February 2000 at the Sports Corner in DePere, WIin an upstairs banquet room. They had two wonderful years there until they moved to their new digsat the SC Grand on HWY 41. The SC Grand was their home until 2007 when they were handed thegolden key from PMI and became the main tenants of the Meyer Theatre. They are now in their 8thglorious year at the historic Meyer Theatre. Since their inception, Let Me Be Frank has coined 87original scripts for musical theater. Taking their shows on the road was the next step for Let Me BeFrank Productions which brings them to Waupun’s Historic City Hall Auditorium. They hope to continue to entertain you for many years to come!.
