Gypsy  

First Time at Goodspeed!

April 28 – June 18      

A Musical Fable
Book by Arthur Laurents
Music by Jule Styne
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Suggested by memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee
Directed by Jenn Thompson (Anne of Green Gables, The Music Man, Oklahoma!)

Here she is, world! Momma Rose, the ambitious stage mother determined to drive her daughters toward stardom, takes center stage in one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. And with her comes a parade of iconic tunes that conjure the joys and heartaches of show business: “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Together Wherever We Go,” and more. The brassy masterpiece about vaudeville and burlesque lights up the Goodspeed stage for the very first time. Curtain up!

Age Rating: PG-13 (mature themes)

Summer Stock

A World Premiere Musical Comedy

July 7 – August 27   

Adapted from the MGM/Warner Bros. film Summer Stock
By George Wells and Sy Gromberg
Music by Harold Arlen, Harry Warren and Gene DePaul
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer, Mack Gordon, Saul Chaplin, Jack Brooks, Ted Koeler, E.Y. Harburg, Billy Rose and Leo Robin

Forget your troubles — come on, get happy! The tradition of turning a barn into a theater finds fertile new ground in a joyous world premiere inspired by the classic Judy Garland-Gene Kelly musical. When stage-struck Abigail invites fellow troupers to the family farm with the idea of putting on a show, her practical sister Jane is stubborn as a mule. The land needs work — and workers. Sisterhood, budding romance and a Broadway-bound musical are all at risk. But there’s nothing like the sunshine of hits from the American songbook to chase all your cares away!

Age Rating: G

The 12

Book & Lyrics by Robert Schenkkan

Directed by John Doyle

Jerusalem. The disciples are in disarray. Torn apart by the unthinkable death of their leader, see how twelve ordinary individuals come together to create one of the most powerful movements ever known.  Filled with power and passion, The 12 is a universal story of love and how each of us must eventually navigate the loss of whatever we hold most dear. Join us for a profoundly moving musical that you will never forget!

Featuring the unforgettable hits "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" and "One Night Only,” this is one Goodspeed production you won’t want to miss!
