2016 SEASON  |  BOOK YOUR GROUP  |  GROUP PACKAGES & DAY TRIPS  |  SCHOOL GROUPS  |  MORE INFO

Goodspeed offers American musical theatre at its finest—Broadway-caliber performances with the charm and ease of a rural destination. Choose either a matinee or an evening performance, Wednesday through Sunday (please call for specific times and dates). Matinee performances are the first to fill up, so call early in the year to schedule your daytime trips.

Beyond the musical experience, we specialize in theatre and a little bit more... You may choose to package your theatre trip with another activity to make your event just a little different. Depending upon the nature of your group, you may want to consider a day-long excursion, or simply add a customized meal or reception to your evening’s plans.
