The final production in the Visalia Players 62nd Season is The Humans. If you are a fan, as I am, of the novel The Humans by Matt Haig, it will be understandable that you are excited about this play. If you are a fan of the British TV series The Humans, you will probably get excited all over again.

Disney’s Newsies musical hit the Roger Rocka’s stage this past weekend, presented by Good Company Players. I had never seen the show before, but I was familiar with several of its songs and had seen a performance on the Tony’s, where it won awards for Best Original Score and Best Choreography.

“Good Morning, Baltimore!”
Those words mean that the Good Company Players have time-traveled back to 1962 and the good old days of racial segregation on teenage dance shows in the musical Hairspray on stage at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater through May 19. What a joyous blast from the past it is!
