This summer, Goodspeed Musicals, a Tony Award-winning theater company in East Haddam, CT dedicated to the development, advancement, and preservation of musical theater, is producing a new musical: Because of Winn Dixie. Based on Kate DiCamillo’s award-winning middle-grade novel, Because of Winn Dixie follows a young girl and her father, a preacher, as they take in a stray dog they found in their small town’s supermarket. Featuring music by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and lyrics by Nell Benjamin (Mean Girls; Legally Blonde: The Musical), this new musical explores how a small southern town full of lost souls finds connection and compassion within each other.
 

CLC is thrilled to be partnering with the Goodspeed to offer unique member opportunities centered around Because of Winn Dixie:
