Good Company Theatre is ecstatic to announce the world premiere of Odettes for the Holidays. This festive one-act play with music is a Good Company Theatre original work, including five new songs. 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 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. A little Motown, a little Stax, a little Chess Records,” reflects Good Company Theatre Managing 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.”
The Salt Project was able to go watch and loved it. When we walked into the theatre, we were immediately greeted with big smiles and hugs! Plus, cupcakes and drinks! Since there hasn't really been any snow in Utah, it hasn't felt like Christmas, but after the first song by the Odettes, "Oh, Holy Night," the Christmas Spirit settled over everyone in the audience. It was just lovely.
The show is recommended for fans of that classic ‘60s sound ages 13 and up.
Good Company Theatre develops and promotes high-quality, eclectic theatrical productions and events, forging new relationships between audiences, performers, and spaces in the process.
