The support of friends like you is what makes the magic of Goodspeed possible. We can’t do it without you – so thank you for your generosity.

Below you can find information on the various ways to support Goodspeed and our programs. Please consider providing general operating support by becoming a member, or donating to a specific area that meets your interests. 

If you have any questions, our Development team is happy to help and can be reached at 860.873.8664, ext. 317.


Through the years, the dedication and support of our members has been the most important component of Goodspeed's success.

Each year Goodspeed welcomes nearly 130,000 patrons to experience the magic of musical theatre through timeless classics and vibrant new works.  Still, ticket sales cover only 60% of the cost of making all of this happen.  As a non-profit theatre, we rely upon the generous support of individuals just like you to continue producing works of artistic excellence and making these productions accessible to everyone.

Great theatre needs so many people – from the musician in the pit, to the actors and production staff – to you.  Our partnership with our members is what makes the art of what we do possible.  Please join today.

Goodspeed Musicals Dedicated Performance


Goodspeed addresses issues unique to the field by offering innovative and highly sought-after programs through its Max Showalter Center for Education in Musical Theatre and its Center for New American Musicals.  Goodspeed serves nearly 3,000 children and students each season through its Max Showalter Center which includes these programs:


  • The Goodspeed Institute - a year-long program that includes the Music Direction Intensive, Audition Intensive, Scenic Painting Intensive, and Musical Theatre Dance Intensive.
  • Arts Education Collaboration – engages young and underserved students in the creative process of musical theatre.
  • Apprenticeship Program - assists undergraduate and graduate students in gaining experience in technical, production, company management, and administrative musical theatre operations.
  • Kids’ Nights - offers young people an opportunity to see the magic of musical theatre at a discounted rate.

Your support of Goodspeed’s Education Programs will allow us to engage young people in the creative process of musical theatre, and help make the art form accessible to the next generation of theatergoers.

Building Preservation

You can ensure that the beauty of the historic Goodspeed Opera House will be shared by generations to come.  Your donation to the Building Preservation Fund will help keep this majestic building in tip-top shape, maintaining its unique historical character. Whenever you visit Goodspeed and see the iconic theatre, you will know that its splendor is thanks to your support!

New Musical Development

At Goodspeed, we are passionate about making musicals and providing opportunities for theatre artists to create musical theatre works of art.  You can help us promote, develop, and produce musicals, and encourage the work of these writers.  Musical theatre creates community, provides connection with our fellow humans, and reminds us of how much more we are truly capable of - and you can make that possible.  Your donation will support fresh voices in our industry as they create exciting new musicals here at Goodspeed.
