You Down with GCT?

We welcome Good Company Theatre's co-founder Alicia Washington to the show this week to talk about how they curate the stories their company chooses to tell and her activism in the community for people of color. Plus, we do some Pinkies Up, Thumbs Down and Upcoming Events.

That's Some Good Company You're in There

After so many plugs for their shows and the great stories they tell, we had to get Good Company Theatre co-founder Alicia Washington in to chat about how they choose the stories they do. We chatted about their most recent show, "Ripped", which runs until Sunday, October 6th.



Learn more about upcoming shows at Good Company by visiting their website, following them on Facebook or Instagram, or joining their email list.


In addition to her passion for theater, Alicia told us about her work in the community, advocating for people of color and those whose voices are not always heard. Our conversation revolves around the recent shooting of a man by Ogden City Police that caused an uproar through the city.
