Nothing says optimism for GCP
like season tickets

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. Watch it here:




As part of our “We’re Still Here” festivities, The Munro Review is giving away two pairs of season tickets to GCP. When will this upcoming season happen and what will the titles be? We aren’t sure. It depends on the coronavirus. But we know it’s going to happen and that you’ll be able to enjoy a full, six-show season. One winner will receive season tickets to Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater. The other winner will receive season tickets to the 2nd Space Theatre.

The contest is open to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review. Tax-deductible memberships start at $5 a month, and you can make a one-time donation of as little as $3. A free membership option is available. (Paid memberships help keep the site running, and paid members get special members-only benefits. Please consider a paid membership in support of independent, local arts journalism.) For details on how to join, go to the Membership and Sponsorship page. No purchase, donation or membership is necessary to enter the season-tickets giveaway.

To enter this giveaway, leave a reply at the bottom of this page answering this question: What show would you most like GCP to perform? It can be a new Broadway title or a revival of a past GCP hit. Deadline to enter is 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. The winners will be picked at random and notified by email.

Another way to support GCP: Contribute to the GoFundMe campaign

The greater Fresno area loves Good Company Players, and community members are showing it by buying gift certificates and contributing to the GCP GoFundMe campaign. Here’s the current GoFundMe total (updated Nov. 22), all of which has been raised since the pandemic began. You can add to it and help support local theater during tough times:

$37,320.00

    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.

    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.
