Good Company Theatre is ecstatic to remount Odettes For The Holidays. This festive, original one-act play with music premiered at GCT in December 2014.
After nearly a decade, famed 1960s girl-group The Odettes returns to their hometown for a holiday reunion concert at the Double-Time Lounge, where they got their start. With Christmastime hits like
“Tinsel and Mistletoe,” “Jingle Jangle,” and “Snow Angel,” it’s bound to please their adoring fans.
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 Woodrow “Woody” Watson joins them on keys as they prepare for their long-awaited return to the stage.
“Odettes for the Holidays is truly in the spirit of the season with its delightful story and warmhearted tunes,” effuses the show’s Director Alicia Washington. “Its central themes of love and family are
sure to resonate with audiences of all types.”
“This play is an homage to the style of music that helps make this time of year so memorable like songs by Darlene Love and The Staple Singera,” reflects Good Company Theatre Co-Director Camille
Washington, who wrote the music and the story. “It is also a tribute to the personalities and relationships that shape our lives and make the holidays special.”
Odettes for the Holidays features performances by Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin (Mercury, Women of Lockerbie), Sammee Lydia James (Surely Goodness and Mercy), Mack (A Diva Holiday, Caroline or Change), and Laikwan Waigwa-Stone (Lady Day at Emmerson’s Bar and Grill).
The show is recommended for fans of that classic ‘50s and ‘60s sound ages 10 and up.
Tickets are available for $17 online at goodcotheatre.com and at the door before each performance.
