In Sunday’s Spotlight section, I anticipate Wednesday’s big 40th anniversary celebration for Good Company Players — a red-carpet affair at the Tower Theatre — with 10 memories of my own about the last 20 years of GCP productions. Here’s my first one:
The “Go-go-go Joseph” cheerleader scene in the terrific 1996 production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The red baseball caps, pompons and pennants transformed the stage into an instant pep rally. Other productions I’ve seen of the show might use that same cheerleader convention, but this staging of the scene set the standards for all others.
What are your favorite GCP memories from over the years? (I’m hoping for some help here from longtime GCP-goers who especially might be able to help me with those first 20 years.) Feel free to add one, two or 10 to this post.
