Sept. 13 at the SMPAC: Kicking off the Season Series with a Winner


What a great way to start the South Milwaukee PAC season!

From the PAC (and tickets are still available) …

Even though the legendary coach has passed on, you don’t have to miss his spirit.

South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center is proud to present The Life and Times of Vince Lombardi on Thursday, September 13, at 7:30.

Some would say he never left at all and that John Pinero is Vince Lombardi! John Pinero’s one-man play portraying the greatest professional coach in football history is a force to be reckoned with. John has won praise and recognition from the professional football community and fans. John’s list of testimonials is extensive and includes praise from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame, and former Lombardi players, Bart Starr, Willie Davis, Fuzzy Thurston, and Jerry Kramer. He has impressed and inspired communities and critics with his highly appraised play.

ABC television hired him to star as Vince Lombardi in the 2006 pre-game Super bowl show. Among the reviews, Mike Downey of the Los Angeles Times told readers it’s “riveting” and to “Go, go, go see Vince!” The Milwaukee Journal wrote, “This is the stage incarnation of Vince Lombardi, brought to you with impeccable care by actor John Pinero”, and the Green Bay Press Gazette declared, “Vince packs a lot into less than two hours. Pinero did his homework, and then some.”

In the continued tradition of providing youth inspirational opportunities when possible, John Pinero will also meet with and provide a motivational presentation for the students of South Milwaukee High School at an outreach event during the school day.
