Good Company Theatre presents ODETTES for the holidays!

Good Company Theatre has a great holiday gift for you. Let them take you home for the holidays – to a place you’ve never been. It is December 1974. Sit in at the local club for a reunion of The Odettes, a famous 60s “girls group”. They’ve gone their separate ways for more than 10 years and one is replaced by her daughter, who organizes the reunion as a tribute to her mother, now passed on. This is a perfect set up for...

Guys and Dolls is a swinging good time!

Ogden’s Ziegfeld Theater opened their newest production, Guys and Dolls, to a nearly packed house last night. Strains of Sinatra and Louis Armstrong wafted through the air pre-show, creating anticipation in the crowd.

Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile. I wore a stupid grin throughout the play as Sally, Schroeder, Linus, Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown played out their ridiculous antics. Children were delighted by the play as well as adults. A couple kids I talked to were huge fans of Lucy and Sally, played by Morgan Parry and...

“Appropriate” for an Amazing Evening

A review of Appropriate by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins which is now showing at Good Company Theater from April 29-May 15, 2016. Plot synopsis: A family gathers to settle the estate of their recently deceased father. Tensions are already high when an album full of perverse, racist photos is found and everything goes to hell. Each character’s life story is its own plot line that intertwines with the others as the family deals with the...
