Opera House Tours

Where Do Country Stores and Steamboats and Sherlock Holmes and Highways and Annie and Tony All Come Together?

tour dressing roomCome hear the story of how an enterprising family, a picturesque landmark, an insightful restoration, and brilliant execution evolved into one of the most important institutions in American theater: Goodspeed Musicals.

Go behind the scenes of a musical at the Goodspeed Opera House. Explore our magical building while learning about the vibrant history of the Goodspeed!

Our hour-long tour is a perfect extension of any visit to the picturesque Connecticut River Valley. Have a picnic on the lawn, visit the nearby Gillette's Castle and Connecticut River Museum, or top your visit off with our current show. 

Even better, bring your friends! We can accommodate groups from 5 to 55 and can schedule to meet your needs seven days a week. (Provided that we're clear two hours before a performance. The show must go on!) Make a day of it... Many groups enjoy coming down for a tour in the late morning, lunch at the renowned Gelston House right next door, followed by a matinee of our current production. Altogether a complete theatrical experience.
