2024 Terris Theatre SeasonNow celebrating it's 40th year, The Terris Theatre has been Goodspeed’s home for developing fresh, innovative and original new musicals. Many new and reimagined musicals have been developed in Chester, Conn., before moving on to Broadway, Off-Broadway, National Tours and other Regional Theatres. Because this is a developmental theatre, the show can change on a day-to-day basis. New scenes are added, songs are moved, costumes are changed, dialogue is tweaked—all based on audience response and feedback.
This season, audiences will enjoy three brand new musicals at The Terris!
Season Tickets begin at $117 per person!
A Complicated Woman

John Kenley was a theatre impresario who brought Hollywood
stars like Gene Kelly and Ann Miller to Ohio’s summer stock stages. But when
summer ended, he wintered in Florida where John disappeared… and Jean came
to life. A Complicated Woman is
a new musical that features a Golden Age score and a gender-diverse cast. Join us for the intriguing story of a theatre
legend who had to navigate the joy, pain and pitfalls of leading a double life. Age Rating: 15+
