Good Company Players

by Terrance McArthur


This has become my year of changing opinions. I always hated the song “Tomorrow” from Annie because I associated it with small children singing loudly off-key…until I saw the Good Company Players’ production, and now I love it. Now, I have to admit something I never expected to say…Mamma Mia! is a great show!

Since the 1950s, Simon has been the go-to guy for laughter on radio, TV, and in the movies. Barefoot in the Park, Sweet Charity, The Odd Couple, The Goodbye Girl, Brighton Beach Memoirs…..comedy is spelled Neil Simon.

I have seen many different versions of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but I had never seen Sense and Sensibility until I went to the Good Company Players’ production at 2nd Space a couple of weeks ago.

It is that time of year again when we look back at the year of theatre that just ended–and 2017 was another amazing year in the Valley. There were way too many shows to mention them all, but here are several of the highlights!

KRL covers a lot of theatre, both local and in other parts of California, and we have taken our readers behind the scenes many times to get to know actors, directors, and others involved in putting a show together. This week we are once again doing a q and a with a local actor-this time it is Alex Vaux, who is currently playing Bob Cratchit in GCP’s production of A Christmas Carol at 2nd Space in Fresno.

Remember Dirty Dancing, where it’s at a summer resort in the Catskills? This isn’t that. Remember Where the Boys Are, where Connie Francis is on Spring Break looking for fun and love, and she sings the title song? This isn’t that. Remember Neil Sedaka, who composed a bunch of songs in the ’50s and ’60s, and made a comeback in the ’70s? This isn’t that.

A Christmas Carol On Stage at 2nd Space

A Christmas Carol has been one of my all time favorite stories for as long as I can remember and I have seen many versions of it, including the Patrick Stewart one, and local actor/director Chris Mangels one man show version (3 times now I think at least). So when I saw that it was on the schedule for the Good Company Players season at 2nd Space in Fresno, well of course I was going to go.

Fog and mist from the windswept moors rolling in through an open door.
A howl in the night.
Red, glowing eyes.
Sherlock Holmes.
It must be…The Hound of the Baskervilles.

I first saw Camille Gaston on my computer, laughing a lot as Brandon Delsid’s sidekick on the Basically Brandon webcast. Then, I started noticing her onstage in supporting parts that attracted attention. She was Scuttle the Seagull in The Little Mermaid, the Witch in Big Fish in Selma, and the Acid Queen in The Who’s Tommy. Now, she takes center stage as Deloris Van Cartier in the Good Company Players production of Sister Act, and she commands attention in the role. Give it to her. She deserves it.

Neil Simon is one of the best known and best loved American Playwrights in history. From Barefoot In The Park, to The Odd Couple, to The Goodbye Girl, he is as good as it gets. One of Simon’s lesser-known works, a play titled Fools is currently playing at the Good Company Player’s 2nd Space Theatre in Fresno through August 20.

What better time than baseball season to produce a musical that involves baseball! Damn Yankees, produced by the Good Company Players, burst out onto the Roger Rocka’s stage in Fresno on May 18.
