The story of a man and his unlikely success in creating a community theater troupe in Fresno, California that has endured for 40 years. Every single week of the year, Dan Pessano’s Good Company Players puts on nine to 10 performances between its two venues. It has never missed a show.
“The Company We Keep” looks at the man and the company over the past 40 years. Through the struggles and triumphs, the story explores themes of friendship, family and community and examines the meaning of success and “making it big” in showbiz. It showcases the influence of GCP, as the company is known, on some major stars, including Audra McDonald, Sharon Leal, Heidi Blickenstaff and Christopher Gorham, all alumni, and how the company helped establish a cultural center in California’s Central Valley.
This book is a delight to read. As one of the early GCP performers in the early 80s it is like reading a piece of my own history. So happy to see that the company still thrives. I feel proud to have been a part of this history and magic!
