GoodSpeed Musicals

home  |  Press Room  |  Search



The Rodgers & Hammerstein classic that changed American musicals forever dawns at Goodspeed for the very first time. Cowboy Curly and farm girl Laurey are taking their sweet time falling in love. Can these stubborn romantics admit their feelings before it’s too late? Passion, laughter and high-kicking choreography blossom in a land where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain. A legendary score—including “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “The Surrey With the Fringe on Top” and the rousing title tune—will put you in a brand new state!

Open Caption Performance

Friday, Sept. 15, 8pm
Open-captioning is a service that displays the text of a show simultaneously with the performance without the use of any special equipment by the patron. The words are displayed on a 4-foot by 1-foot LCD screen located near the edge of the stage and are thus “open” to anyone within view. We recommend you book your tickets with a Box Office representative to ensure that you are seated in an area with the best view of the display. Please call 860.873.8668.
