In Good Company’s mission of creating and performing original musical plays, and harnessing the power of the arts to make connections in our communities and schools, relies on the support of our audiences and generous donors throughout the Greater Boston area and beyond. And this year, your support is more important than ever, as IGC embarks on an ambitious season with two – count them 2 – new shows premiering over the next six months.
|The first new show is Reinventing the Wheel, written by Mark Eisman. Developed in collaboration with the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation in Waltham, this new musical play recounts the story and the inventions of Charles H. Metz, a turn of the 20th century transportation innovator who called Waltham home. Somewhat lost to history, Metz played an important role not only in the engineering of his time, but also in women’s and civil rights.||Then we are excited to finally bring Radiance of the Day to the stage following the pandemic delay. Set in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Radiance evokes the story of the 1912 Bread and Roses strike in the context of today’s diverse community. And we are thrilled to be working with the team creating a new outdoor festival in Lawrence, where we expect to premiere the show in early September. (Sneak peek videos can be found here.)|
But we cannot achieve these ambitious goals without your generous support. Through the Let’s Go On With the Show campaign, we hope to raise $10,000 to make these shows available to audiences at low to no cost, provide our actors and production teams with sets, props, and equipment (including appropriate safety protocols), and prepare IGC for the coming year.
