Who we are...

Good Company Players’s (GCP) Junior Company, a rotating troupe of budding actors aged 8–16, has performed the pre-show at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theatre since 1978.

The Junior Company Foundation is a nonprofit formed in 1995 by a group of like-minded volunteers dedicated to supporting both “the juniors” and promoting the benefits of performing-arts education. While not active for several years, the Foundation has been recently revamped with a new board and new goals. Our two primary functions are as follows:

 

Why we are...

Good Company Players (GCP) was first formed in 1973 (you can read more about their beginnings here). Mini-revues were always a part of GCP shows, but for the first several years these pre-shows were performed by adult actors. In 1978, a decision was made to use the pre-show performances to highlight and encourage children interested in building skills in the performing arts, and thus, the Junior Company was born! The Junior Company Foundation (JCF) was formed in 1995 to create and support scholarships for Junior Company members interested in pursuing advancement opportunities in the performing arts.
