Each season, In Good Company offers productions from its repertoire for public and school performances. This year we will present Hail to the Chief, the delightful, thoughtful and humorous musical journey through the election campaign music of George Washington through the Kennedy era – just in time for the height of the US election! And in the spring, In Good Company is thrilled to mount a new production of Voices from the Mountain, an evocative musical detailing the journey of “songcatcher” Olive Dame Campbell’s visit to the villages and people of Appalachia in the early 1900s.

Our new production, “None But the Best,” premiered in Boston at the Tremont Temple on November 2 and 3 to enthusiastic audiences. The play, which shares the life and works of “the most famous person we never met,” philanthropist and publisher Daniel Sharp Ford, shared, through songs, dances, stories and drama, the work of the man who published “The Youth’s Companion,” the most popular newspaper in America in the late nineteenth century. Ford funded New England Baptist Hospital and the Ruggles Street Baptist Church, and endowed the Boston Baptist Social Union, which continues Ford’s mission of helping the poor and indigent. “None But the Best” played in Sherborn on November 16 and will be performed in early December for the Boston Baptist Social Union.

In over 30 years of leading musical organizations, this is the first time Kay Dunlap has ever been part of the commissioning of a new work. “This is very exciting for In Good Company and a great help to us in getting started,” Dunlap said. “While we often create shows about people from history, this is the first time someone else has suggested that we create a show around a specific person.” It has turned out to be a fascinating project in which the whole cast has learned a lot about Boston and New England in the second half of the 19th century. “We thought we already knew a lot about this period. We had previously presented a show about the Hutchinson Family Singers set at the end of the Civil War and the causes they supported: abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage and temperance. But None but the Best has taught us not […]
