Good Company Players
has a simple message:
'We're Still Here!'

To celebrate the resilience of Good Company Players — along with the staying power of all local arts organizations — we made a special episode of “The Munro Review on CMAC.” The show, titled “We’re Still Here,” features eight powerhouse singers offering solo performances and personal reflections on what Fresno’s most storied theater company means to them.

    Well, let’s see. We have to consider what GCP can get the rights for (so no “Hadestown” suggestion), and they have to always consider keeping butts in seats, so nothing too obscure or rated R.

    I think I’d love to see them do one of my old favorites, “Two Gentlemen of Verona.” Beautiful songs, great characters, slightly edgy, fantastic roles for the GCP regulars, Ginger and David get to shine as usual with costumes and creative sets, and I’d love for Brad Myers to direct it (I’ve become too picky now, haven’t I?).

    So, yes! Two Gentlemen.

    And my dream for Second Space? Oooo, that’s a toughie. I know there’s one very risqué part, but I think society needs to see “Master Harold and the Boys” done in that wonderful intimate setting.

  • Steph

    And I want to say something about these performances, these moving and perfect and profound songs delivered with such breathtaking talent.

    I imagine a world where all those performers are auditioning for just one part – we’d have to have callbacks for years and years because each song was just beautifully done.

    Thanks so much to you, CMAC, the GCP singers, and always to Dan Pessano for making his beating heart a few buildings in the Tower dedicated to creating a home for this fine family of artists.

    Bravo. Truly. Bravo.

    • Dan Crotty

      Thank you, Donald for all you do to keep the arts “Alive” in the Central Valley

      I would love to see another encore production of The Drowsy Chaperone

  • Kim

    I would love to see King and I make it to the stage finally

  • Bard

    I’d love to see Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

  • Liesl

    How about 7 brides for 7 brothers

  • Linda Ramirez

    I’d like to see 5 guys Named Moe.

  • James Walls

    May be several years before the rights become available, but COME FROM AWAY would be an awesome show to see the company do!! Also ASSASSINS would be cool to see.
    For 2nd Space: Waiting for Godot, True West by Sam Shepard, Noises Off, What the Butler Saw, heck any type of British Farce I’m down for. I would also love to see a collection and stage version of some of the popular episodes of The Twilight Zone.

  • Sandi

    We would love to see Mary Poppins! We thoroughly enjoyed the amazing Clovis North production a couple of years ago, and have been hoping to see it at Roger Rocka’s.

  • Eireen Escalona

    In the Heights!

  • Linda Hamby

    An encore performance of Newsies!!!

  • RandyCoombs

    Beauty and the Beast

  • Susan McAndrew

    How about Kinky Boots? Would love to see it.

  • Dan

    I’d love some Shakespeare. Midsummer Night’s Dream comes to mind. Fresno State did a version that was excellent.

    • Becky

      Dan, I agree the Fresno State production did the Bard proud! And I say this as someone who spends a week at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival every year.

  • linda and george sward

    We would be ecstatic to see anything live! Waiting as [im]patiently as we can. . .

  • Dave Brodie

    How about something entirely different, “Saturday Night Fever.”

  • Kristy

    In the Heights would be great!!!

  • Tamara

    Goodness. Right now I would love to see ANYTHING.

  • Caty Perez

    I already ready for Newsies to come back!

  • I’m waiting for GCP to break a leg with Pippin.

  • Jennifer Earle

    I agree that anything live would be wonderful right now. I would love to see Kinky Boots, Come from Away, and In The Heights for GCP and Master Class for Second Space.

  • PBennett

    Come from Away, when it’s available. School of Rock would be fun. In the Heights. Can’t wait for live theater to return!

  • Pepper23

    Cabaret is in my head right now.
    By the time we re open, Damn Yankees!
    Lola wants.😉

  • Dorina Gilmore-Young

    What an amazing giveaway! Would love to see Wicked or Les Miserables!

  • Pete Gustafson

    We have loved so many shows and imagine we will do so in the future. I have to admit we were a little bummed when Pippin got pulled from the schedule so that’s an easy initial choice… probably lots of others, but that’ll do for now.

  • Becky

    Will wish big: Hamilton.
    Of all the things I miss from my BC (before covid) life, the performing arts & Art Hop top the list. Am taking advantage of streamed, archival films, whatever offerings are available of performing arts – whether free or pay-to-view, it helps fill the void. When ‘live’ returns, life will be full again!

  • Lisa Ovalle

    As of now, I would like to see anything performed. Live theater is truly one of the things I missed the most during our current situation. One title that pops into my mind, is Sweeney Todd. Such a fun play with iconic songs.

  • Patty Stratton

    We’d love to see the King and I–one of our favorites! No matter what comes next, we know we will enjoy it!

  • Jeanne


  • Ernie

    I’d love to see Avenue Q, or Fiddler on the Roof even though they did it not too long ago. Really, I’ll watch anything. I miss live theater.

  • Jackie Ryle

    Thank you so very much Donald, Dan, and my favorite GCP performers (including Terry back there). This was like a blast from the past, a warm hug we are missing so much right now, and a promise for the future. Of all that we are experiencing, theater is what I miss the most and Chris was right – GCP IS our Broadway. It was very special to be in the Second Space lobby where we have spent time first in anticipation of going in to see great shows, then in satisfaction on our way out of those wonderful experiences. Loved the format, Donald. Seeing the performance with great sound, with follow up interviews was very rich. I loved every minute! And you look great in that tux!
    A show I would like to see: there are so many. For now I’ll say Jersey Boys!
    Can’t wait to be back in the theater

  • Barbara Mecca

    I would love to see GCP do Hamilton. That’s a dream which someday could happen.

  • Kevin Conorich

    In 2019 my boys were able to attend an Epic run of shows and are severely missing live theater now. Would love to see:
    Come From Away
    American Idiot
    The Scarlet Pimpernel
    High Fidelity
    Sunshine on Leith
    Whistle Down the Wind

    Just to name a few

  • Kaila Igasan


  • Bernice Miessner

    My all-time favorite play is Les Miz. I would love to see “The Drowsy Chaperone” again. “Kinky Boots” would be a kick!!

  • Garrison Bennett

    Would love to see (and if I’m lucky, perform in) a GCP production of Natasha, Pierre, & the Great Comet of 1812!
