The Selma Arts Center will be presenting Cabaret starting on November 8 and local actor Meg Clark will be playing the role of Sally Bowles. Meg was born in Fresno but grew up in Reedley and Dinuba. We took a moment to chat with her about her life, acting, and about taking on this role.

Daphne du Maurier wrote moody, atmospheric fiction, sometimes paranormal, with love entwined—”romance noir,” where characters with a happy ending aren’t really that happy. Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, The Birds, Frenchman’s Creek…and My Cousin Rachel. The Good Company Players’ 2nd Space Theatre currently presents a tense, breathtaking adaptation through October 13.

“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!

In the Spring of 2018, the Good Company Players presented Mamma Mia!, the ABBA musical, at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater. It was a great show, and it was a big hit. Guess what? They’re at it again!
