Roger Rocka’s

by Terrance V. Mc Arthur

You remember how it begins, that opening panorama swirling down onto Julie Andrews singing her heart out on top of a mountain, and you know it’s The Sound of Music……..but that’s the movie. The real musical is onstage at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, directed by the Good Company Players’ managing director, Dan Pessano.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is currently on stage at Roger Rocka’s in Fresno and it’s a night of rollicking fun. If you have ever seen the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels movie staring Steve Martin and Michael Caine you know the general story of the musical.

This past year I had the pleasure of seeing Emily Pessano on stage, first in The Drowsy Chaperone and then again in Legally Blonde, both at Roger Rocka’s in Fresno. As soon as I saw her on stage, I knew I had to add her to my list of local actor profiles—she just blew me away with an incredible voice, great dancing, and acting. She simply glows on stage!

This has been a great year for theatre in the Valley! I’ve been blessed to have had the chance to enjoy a great deal of it, and KRL has reviewed and previewed even more—from the more serious thought provoking plays produced by new company The New Ensemble, to fun musicals like Grease at Reedley River City and the Valley premiere of Legally Blonde at Roger Rocka’s.

The Drowsy Chaperone, currently on stage at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater in Fresno, is the dictionary definition of a big musical—it takes one back to the days of Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby and Ginger Rogers.

Not only is the Fresno area graced with very talented performers, but also talented people behind the scenes that make it all happen, the people without whom those performers would have no show. David Pierce, with Good Company Players in Fresno, is one of those people.
