Good Company creates captivating, original musical theater productions inspired by stories from American history. The auditioned ensemble of adults, teens and children presents public performances throughout New England, and offers interactive school programs in the Greater Boston area.
The Program. Songs rarely play a significant role during Presidential campaigns today, but for many years, they were a fascinating and important part of the election process. For its premiere presentation, In Good Company will present a program of songs from the time of Washington to Eisenhower. Beginning at 3 pm, audience members may create buttons and posters to use in the performance and to take home as souvenirs.
