Hear Ye, Hear Ye!
With the consistent increase in COVID-19 cases in California and Fresno County since Memorial Day, Good Company Players has decided to delay opening The King & I until January, 2021 at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater. Both companies are working on plans to downsize shows and streamline dinner service in ways that make it safe for actors, tech staff, wait staff and patrons, and we wanted to update you on our newest approach to living with coronavirus. Please bear in mind that all subsequent information is subject to change (and most likely will have to change again). Naturally, all our proposals must be approved by local health officials.
The King & I will still be included in your current season ticket or regular pre-purchased ticket and GCP fully intends to produce its regularly scheduled 2020 Season at both Roger Rocka’s and 2nd Space Theatre, but realizes that many of the 2020 shows will have to now move to the 2021 Season. That means your current Season Ticket and reservations will still be valid—just with a bit of delayed gratification. GCP has, however, come up with some smaller-scale entertainment options in the interim.
Once it is safe for both companies to re-open this year, we are planning to celebrate with a special Good Company Players’ Concert Event, In the Meantime…, featuring such GCP all-stars as Ed Burke, Meg Clark, Janet Glaudé, Kaye Migaki, Emily Pessano, Sara Price, Shawn Williams and more! There is also a possibility of adding another small-cast production until we are able to safely resume Good Company Players’ regularly-scheduled season. You can purchase the added productions separately or trade one of your season ticket shows for a new production.
Good Company Players’ 2nd Space Theatre will be ready to re-open once allowed with two small-cast, socially-distanced productions beginning with a production of Love Letters, featuring Tessa Cavalletto and Gordon Moore, and, hopefully, followed by This Random World. GCP hopes to continue with the regularly-scheduled season at 2nd Space Theatre as soon as allowed.
As we said before, all of our current “plans” are subject to change. This is definitely not how any of us expected this year to go, but what we can do is adapt and make the best of it. We want you to know how much we truly appreciate your support and patience as we all adjust to the realities of this uncertain time. Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding. Please continue to stay safe and take care of one another.
