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.

We believe that everyone should benefit from the emotional, aesthetic and communal connections that the arts can provide. Goodspeed serves nearly thousands of children and students each season through its Max Showalter Center for Education in Musical Theatre which includes these programs:

  • Music Theatre Institute Institute - an ever-growing education and training initiative that offers a wide array of workshops and intensives for students, young professionals, and individuals looking to continue their education in the arts.
  • Arts Education Collaboration – annually engages over 800 young and underserved students in the creative process of musical theatre, offering workshops, performance tickets, lunch and transportation at no cost to students or schools.
  • 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 and a literary component to enrich their experience. 
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.

Goodspeed offers approximately two performances each year that are designated as Sensory-Friendly and provide the opportunity for individuals with autism or other sensory processing issues and their families to enjoy a day of live theatre together. Tickets are offered at a heavily discounted rate and production and front-of-house accommodations are made to ensure that there is no financial or social burden to attend. Your gift will ensure that we can continue to make the theatre accessible to everyone.

Michael P. Price Endowment

After nearly five decades at the helm, Michael Price left Goodspeed as a fiscally sound and artistically thriving institution. The Michael Price Endowment Fund was established to recognize and institutionalize his nearly half-century of leadership of our theatre. The fund supports Goodspeed’s core mission by helping to produce one mainstage musical each season. Please join us in looking forward to many more years of theatrical magic by investing in Goodspeed’s future and generously supporting The Michael Price Endowment Fund at Goodspeed Musicals.
