CLC Exclusive Opportunity at the Goodspeed Opera House

Join us for an exclusive CLC opportunity! Our partners at Goodspeed Musicals are hosting us for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of their summer musical, Because of Winn Dixie, based on the beloved Newbery Honor-winning children's book by Kate DiCamillo. 


The event will include:

  • Live viewing of a technical rehearsal
  • Q&A with the creative team
  • Tour of Scherer Library of Musical Theatre at Goodspeed (the only library dedicated solely to American musical theatre in the world!)
  • Social hour next door at the historic Gelston House featuring generous hors d'oeuvres


How exclusive is this opportunity? Typically technical rehearsal viewing is only available to VIPs and high-level donors, but our friends at the Goodspeed have given us this special invitation to show how much they value librarians. 


What's special about this musical, besides being based on a cherished children's classic? This is a new musical, with the book and lyrics written by Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde, Mean Girls) and music by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening). It has been previously performed at the Delaware Theatre Company and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, and there are strong hints that the next stop for this show will be Broadway!


Will this event make me want to go back and see the finished production? We hope so! Goodspeed has also generously offered a special discount on show tickets for CLC Members. Click here for more details!


$20 per person. Space is limited to just 40 CLC members!
