"There are very few moments in one's adult life that bring the feeling of pure joy only a child can have when they experience something for the very first time. Goodspeed brought that feeling to me."

Who would have thought fifty years ago that this tiny theatre in a small town along the Connecticut River would have achieved such success?
Did they dare to dream that 19 musicals from the Goodspeed Opera House would go on to Broadway, that the theatre would be the first in the nation to win two special Tony Awards, that thousands of young people would train to become the finest artists and theatrical professionals in America, that Broadway's best and brightest actors and designers would call this place home? Yes, they did have such dreams.
Our founding artists, civic leaders, and members dreamed an "impossible dream" and today Goodspeed Musicals is known around the world for its spectacular productions, its name synonymous with excellence in musical theatre.
