GOOD COMPANY THEATRE, Co-Director, 2012-present
Good Company Theatre develops and promotes high-quality, eclectic theatrical productions and events, forging new relationships between audiences, performers, and spaces in the process.
Utah's only Black-owned and administrated producing theatre. As co-director, there are myriad ways my involvement manifests that aren't so glamorous. I won't list them here. I focus on grant writing, graphic design, photography, and the production of all marketing materials. In the past, I designed sound and some sets for shows. I also draft scripts for all GCT original productions.

For Adelaide "Della" Crawford, Dorinda "Dori" Pendleton, and Regina Johnson, daughter of late original member Deloris Johnson, it is a chance to sing through their memories of one another, of the group that brought them all together, and of the music that keeps them connected. Pianist Woody Watson joins them on keys as they prepare for their long-awaited return to the stage!
